"Young adult daughter Alyssa, and in it, they talk about how to help teens manage device stimuli. Take a listen if you haven't already. Hey listeners, if you're a parent then we've got a show for you. We know that parenting is not for the faint at heart. It can be hard to connect with your child throughout the many stages of their life. That's why Vibrio retell host of mama take heart is back this fall. Wife, mom, Ryder, podcast host, coffee lover and military veteran, Rana has a passion to help you be an influential voice in your daughter's life. In this show, she gives listeners the tools they need to love and lead well and their child's formative years. Whether you're looking for ways to intentionally connect or to have hard conversations, you can find the mama take heart podcast on life audio dot com or in your favorite podcast app. And don't forget to hit subscribe so you don't miss an episode. Okay, so agency, when your girl has some sort of control or power and small areas of her life, it can help her become more resilient and her trust in herself and decision making. This is where parenting is more like coaching. It's okay if your girl wants to choose what clothes she wants to wear and how to style her hair, how she works her makeup, et cetera, even though you may not agree with everything, it's important to teach them how to negotiate and compromise. So I mentioned at the beginning that our tweens and teens, the reverting back to when they were toddlers or preschoolers asking the why questions. And in my case, Savannah and I came to a compromise. She chose to wear her hair and it's naturally curly date and sometimes straight. But no more ponytails. We'd weighed one more Yoda try makeup and Savannah decided to play basketball instead of track. Oh, and she wore those skinny jeans, and now she wears the latest trend, mom jeans. Well, when your girl is going through this stage of development, remember a few things. One, gaining autonomy and agency is a normal part of development, so don't take it personally. At a friend of mine who was further along the path and I and that's one thing she said to me is don't take it personally. And that really helped me. When your girl is trying to discover who she is, apart from you, give her space, but check in with her. That's the second thing you want to do. Three, you want to set clear expectations, be consistent and discourage rebellion. Tweens and teens have hormones raging through their body, which affects the way they think and feel. So sometimes you may need to count to ten yourself and take deep breaths before responding, but the rules of respect still apply to everyone. They apply from her to you and you to her. For if your girl takes something out on you, even though it doesn't feel good and may even be hurtful. Know that your her safe place. That's one of the reasons why she's doing it. After giving her a little space, find out if there's something underneath what's really bothering her. It may have nothing to do with you. Allow for her to have a discussion and to contribute to decision making. And last but not least a 6th thing is pray. Pray over her and at times pray with her. Well, I hope you found this helpful.

"You know, he uses a thorn in our flesh and for his glory. And second Corinthians, you know, 12, 7 through ten, it talks about how his grace is sufficient in our weakness. He is strong. Well, so far we've talked about dyslexia, dyscalculia, and now I'd like to talk about non verbal learning disorder, also known as NLD or in. Which I will be referring to it that way throughout the rest of the discussion about it. Did you know approximately 93% of communication is non verbal? This includes body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice. Those with envy LD have trouble interpreting non verbal language. They rely on the remaining 7% of communication to understand or interpret what a person means. That's missing quite a bit of the conversation. A child with envy LD will have large a large vocabulary and outstanding memory and also auditory retention. I hadn't heard about in the LD non verbal learning disorder until my daughter was diagnosed with it at age 16 or 17. And that's because it's the most overlooked and misunderstood learning disability. The envy LD project states, people with this learning disorder may struggle with the following. Fine motor skills, like using scissors, tying shoe laces, or pencil grip, gross motor skills, like throwing a ball, riding a bike, spatial awareness, bumping into people and things, organization and planning activities that require multitasking, staying focused, recalling visual information, and this is the one I started noticing and my daughter and middle school, and it was peer relationships, reading social, cues and interpreting social interactions. Also, another is handling and understanding new situations. And also the way they interpret nonverbal, facial expressions, posture, tone of voice, notice that in my daughter. Understandings, humor and sarcasm, although I have to say my girl, she understands those pretty well, reading comprehension, essay writing, understanding charts and diagrams like maps and grabs, and then math skills understanding fractions, geometric shapes, and word problems. When my daughter was, she was around two or three. So when Savannah was two or three, people remarked on how well she spoke for her age, and how well she could hold conversations with adults. At the time, I didn't know, but it was because she retained words well and in a literal sense. As she moved into middle school and high school, the skill wasn't as impressive. There were many friendship and social issues that caused her great anxiety. Once again, getting a proper diagnosis is important and nonverbal learning disorder can be present or present itself as anxiety and that's usually caused by difficult social interactions. And also, a lot of times they're diagnosed with ADHD because there are similar symptoms. The best way to treat non verbal learning disorder is through social, emotional learning, and this would be reading body language, tone of voice, et cetera executive function training to develop deficient processing skills and physical or occupational therapy. Now, although my Savannah is in college now, it's still a work in progress, and as we all are, she's just a bit more aware of the work that she has to do. And one thing I can say about hers when she starts getting friendships that aren't getting closer to people in her friendship, she will tell them I have nonverbal learning disorder. She will tell them what it is, and she will ask them to hold her accountable if she starts to displace. So she will know and be able to recognize when it's happening. Well, check out the show notes to learn more about dyslexia, dyscalculia and nonverbal learning disorder. I really hope gaining an understanding of learning disability that it provides insight into how others learn, their struggles, and their ability to triumph, in spite of them. I also pray for compassion and empathy and that they are more freely offered when encountering others, as everyone is fighting their own battle. For those who are with me as a mom of a child, with learning disorders, or if you have one yourself, remember, goddess for you and you're not alone. With his spirit, you are filled with courage and strength of purpose. So don't fret mama. Instead, take heart. Mama take heart is a production of life audio and the Salem web network.
