Promoting Health and Wellness in the Gifted/2E Child

What is a Blog Hop? A Blog Hop is a way to discover and follow blogs, as well as promote your own. Every month or two, we pose a topic, our blogging members discuss it, and we link to their posts. GHF blog hops include bloggers from around the world, all of them committed to articulating the unique concerns, needs, and perspectives of gifted/2e families, especially those who choose to homeschool their "kids.

Please visit this month's Blog Hop contributors and leave a comment. Be part of the conversation!

Being Smart About Health and Wellness ~ Wenda Sheard, J.D. Ph.D. Thoughts on Life & Learning
"I believe that parents should tell their children the truth about health and wellness, warts and all. Let children know that we can no longer pretend that the first world lifestyle is benign. Teach children about society's health and wellness foibles as well as our own personal foibles. Teach children about moderation, and teach them the dangers of assuming that moderation will work seamlessly or sufficiently to bring us health and wellness."

The Care and Feeding of Your Gifted Child ~ Homeschooling Hatters

Keeping Balanced: Promoting Health and Wellness in the Gifted/2E Child ~ Gluten-Free Mum
"As I have talked about before, both my kids have LDs. My son has SPD and ideopathic toe walking (plus another unknown disability we're going through the wringer to get diagnosed). My daughter has anxiety disorder - she gets stressed and then is unable to feel pain - which causes her to be a sensory seeker - she likes throwing herself onto the floor for the bump. I cried the first time she complained about a minor injury. Because it was a big deal - it meant that she was able to feel it, and therapy was working.
So today I'm going to talk about how we incorporate strategies into our day to keep everyone on an even keel. Some of these are for the disabilities, some for the OEs. They all help."
