Maria is a Highly Sensitive Parent and is a mom to a Highly Sensitive Child. This means that my son and I struggle to cope with sensory overload of daily life, and create a duo that gets easily overwhelmed in situations that don’t pose much of a challenge for others. Motherhood put me on a path to discovering the world of High Sensitivity and how it relates to parenting. Before becoming a mother, I spent years working with special needs kids as a therapist, tutor and a hippotherapy volunteer. I have been using my work and motherhood experience to create resources on my blog https://parentonboard.com for other parents who are finding their parenting experience to be overwhelming, and who would like to thrive in their new role as parents.
