The Cup Kid: Parenting a Child with Meltdowns
Book Description: Does your child have frequent meltdowns? Does your child have trouble coping with life? Is your child easily overloaded with sensory input? If so, you may be raising a Cup Kid! Cup Kids fill up with too much noise or too much pressure or too much homework. And when they get too full, they run over in the form of a meltdown or shutdown. The Cup Kid: Parenting A Child with Meltdowns will give you that much needed insight into what happens when your child has “had too much” and what you can do to help your Cup Kid prevent tantrums.
Note from Positively Autism: I've seen a presentation from the author of this book, and it is a great concept and analogy for dealing with anxiety/stress and meltdowns!
