After sharing my heart and why I’m thankful for having a high need child, I was so encouraged, humbled, and inspired by many of the comments. I was especially delighted to find a word that I feel better represents my daughter–spirited. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines spirited as “full of energy, animation or courage.”
In light of this, I changed the title of my on-going series to Parenting a Spirited Child.
My hope is to encourage and inspire those of you who have high need or spirited children by sharing what I’ve learned through research and my own parenting journey. I am not a professional nor have I been a mother for very long, therefore, I do not plan to give a lot of parenting advice. Frankly, I feel very strongly that parents should seek wisdom from God when making decisions on raising their children. Some of what I share may work for your situation, some will not.
If you have a spirited child and would like to share your story or encouragement with other parents, I would love for you to write a guest post for this series! Please read the guest post guidelines and fill out the contact form and let me know what you are interested in sharing.
