As I was listening to the FASD family life podcast, I heard a great story and rationale from one of the speakers. You can switch the fight-flight-freeze response off by simply getting your kiddo to swallow. I tried it in the middle of an EPIC meltdown, I didn’t say anything just put a glass of juice in front of my kiddo. After the first swallow, the change was drastic. It was one of those helpful moments where I now had another strategy in my box for the chaos of life.
