Understanding the effects of impaired driving in Saskatchewan:
As we raise our children to be intimate with what they feel, sense, and know, and to honor and support themselves in their knowing, we are providing them with this fundamentally valuable tool for successfully navigating their internal and external experiences throughout their life.
She was joyful, full of life, and wicked smart. The girl could also be irritable and angry, displaying explosive behaviors when caregivers attempted to redirect her and minimize her complaints.
She had a typical complaint of wanting to do what she wanted to do when she wanted to do it.
She argued that she could in fact listen while doing other things during circle time. Because of her complaints, fidgeting, and refusal to cooperate, the teachers made the girl sit in a chair at a table removed from the group and to color while the rest of the class conducted their weather discussions, reviewed the alphabet, and learned the letter of the day.
Although this decision to exclude the girl from circle time appears to wrongly shame her, one of her teachers demonstrated both compassion and insight to see that this form of physical structure — sitting on the chair at the table, with an activity to calm her mind and busy her hands — in fact enabled the girl to participate fully in their discussions and add to it with more intelligent, creative contributions than most of the other students.
It took some prompting in this rigid classroom, but the staff learned to tweak their expectations and appropriately loosen their requirements of the children, who were then given the choice to sit for circle time or not.
The girl in question was no longer shamed for being different, and she experienced validation from her teachers that her way of participating in circle time was best for her. The plowing into objects and people instead suggested she was seeking physical gross-motor input in that she displayed no anger at these times but seemed to have a lot of fun doing the plowing.
We asked the girl to let us know when she was feeling out of sorts and to seek the big, bear hugs that immediately calmed her, as soon as her body began to tell her that she needed them. Her caregivers at school and home began listening to her more — and began seeing her more clearly as a child who needed their support to speak up about her experiences and needs.
I also made a referral for a physical therapy consult and recommended a nutritional consult, which led to incorporating foods into her diet — and eliminating others — that helped to balance her nervous system so that some of the impulsivity diminished.
Additionally, we built in the time, place, and space for her to enjoy more creative, stimulating activities to express herself, learn, and teach us about herself — how she thinks, feels, senses, and relates to herself, others, and the world. What worked for this girl is that we were able to see her through various lenses of her holistic health and well-being.
By using protocols within the sensory, biology-physical expression, creative self-expression, nutrition, and attachment-relationship lenses, we successfully learned to honor what Sarah knew to be true for herself, and we provided her with more knowledge and supports that she needed to further know and support herself.
And because she taught her caregivers that they need to listen to her and to fully see her and learn from her, she was able to internalize an aspect of her identity as a person of value in the world. What I think, feel, want, experience, and express matters to others.
I am worthy of being heard and seen and respected. The experiences and lessons will likely be the same: We want our child to know what it is that he knows, to honor what it is that he knows and, when old enough, to seek the supporting knowledge to inform his decisions further.
