HIGHLY SENSITIVE CHILD Elaine N Aron
Is your child sensitive to almost everything - scratchy clothes, strong tastes, loud noises, crowded places, a change in routine? A vivid dreamer, distressed by scary films or fearful in new situations? Prone to hurt feelings, upset by criticism and eager to do things right? Frequently labelled as shy, introverted, fussy or faddy? If so, your child may be one of the 15 to 20 per cent of children who are born highly sensitive. Often gifted, Highly Sensitive Children are intuitive and reflective but easily overwhelmed. These qualities can make for bright, conscientious and creative children, but may also result in shyness, fussiness or acting out. This book for parents and teachers, by pioneering psychotherapist Elaine Aron, is an invaluable guide to successfully parenting HSCs into happy, healthy, well-adjusted adults.
