When he was just five years old and a child in preschool, Nicole Olson’s son was suffering. Lots of changes were going on in his world, and in the midst of dealing with them he “lost his personality.”
Nicole had thought that, if only she checked all the right boxes and pushed him into all the right activities, academic and otherwise, that he’d be fine.
When she discovered that was not the case, she felt about the biggest load of parental guilt that one could feel…
That sad, depressed 5-year-old is now 14 and thriving. Today’s episode shares their story, and will feel so relevant for you if you worry at all about how your child will learn to get along in this world.
