On today’s episode Wendy interviews Lynne Jackson who has over 25 years of experience as both a parent to three intense children & as a pediatric occupational therapist specializing in kids with sensory processing disorder and behavioral challenges.

In 2002 Lynne and her husband Jim founded Connected Families, a ministry that helps parents learn to embody God’s grace in the midst of family life.

As a speaker, parenting educator, certified life coach, podcaster, and author, Lynne has helped thousands of parents learn to be peaceful, purposeful, and confident.

Lynne & her husband have always had a heart for struggling kids – whether it be emotionally or from a sensory standpoint.

They have a passion for helping families of faith find deeper connection so that the parents can earn deep, heartfelt influence in the lives of their children.

Today Wendy & Lynne explore how parents can stay in integrity even when their children are sensitive, intense, and challenging:

  1. How to know if misbehavior is primarily sensory or behaviorally based
    • Aiming to help your highly sensitive child vs. fix or correct them is important
  2. How arousal state (our energy level or emotional state) affects conflicts & discipline
    • We want to deescalate the fight or flight response instead of add to it
  3. How to handle sensory processing differences with integrity
    • Connected Families Parenting Framework
      1. You are safe with me.
      2. You are loved no matter what.
      3. You are called and capable.
      4. You are responsible for your actions.
