Do you ever experience having your child sit on your face? Or your child keeps on chewing that toy? Or who likes to spin in circles and to move constantly?

​I do and I know parenting with sensitive, strong-willed, or spirited children can be tough. This can be a cause of stress and anxiety for us.

​For this episode, we are going to discuss a topic that you may find a little bit technical. But, I know for sure can help you understand your child's behavior. And so, I am super excited to be joined with Candice Curtis who is an Occupational Therapist and a Sensory Integration Specialist. She's a beautiful mom of two amazing boys. Her mission is to help parents with children who have sensory processing and executive functioning difficulties. It is her passion to give these parents the right tools to help their kids with sensory needs so that they can enjoy life as a family.
