A reader asks Dr. B how to convey to a child that his behavior in expressing himself is not OK, but his feelings are.
Rest. Let go of the busy. It’s easy to let the holiday’s take over with its endless to-do’s. This season, take time to be present.
Dear Dr. B, Our daughter was in a car accident on her way to college last week. Because of a concussion in the car accident, her doctor said she can’t listen to Christmas music, watch Christmas movies or even look at Christmas lights for several weeks. Those were my primary concerns until we drove home yesterday and the stress from being in the car came over me. Her car was totaled, so how do I overcome the fear of letting her drive again? How does she overcome the fear from the accident in order to drive again? Sincerely, Concussion Concerned Parent
