Mindful Dad, Counsellor MBAC, parent mentor and author helping sensitive children to be better understood so they can thrive in our overwhelming world. High sensitivity has a massive impact on my family’s life, and coming to understand the trait has transformed our lives – for the better. Before we understood high sensitivity we were bumbling about in the dark; now we’re in the light.
It's not easy to be a highly sensitive child. Nor is it always easy to raise, care for, guide and teach a highly sensitive child. Because the highly sensitive child experiences the world a little differently, and that can be difficult to understand.
Ten-year-old Annie knows what she loves: being on the beach with her dog, Echo. There, by the sea, everything that feels cross and sad and scared and mad seems to drift away. In this gentle story, authors Lucy and James offer reassurance and inspiration for the highly sensitive child who sees the world not in black and white, but every colour of the rainbow.
This concise book steps beyond a basic understanding of high sensitivity, looking at the challenges and distress that meltdowns can cause for highly sensitive children. A meltdown can be a terrifying experience for a highly sensitive child and for people witnessing it. This guide gives you the confidence to understand what having a meltdown means, and the knowledge to provide support and comfort.
It’s not easy to be a highly sensitive child. Nor is it always easy to raise, care for, guide and teach a highly sensitive child. Because the highly sensitive child experiences the world a little differently, and that can be difficult to understand.
This book aims to help you experience the world from the child’s perspective, so that you can better understand them and help them to grow and thrive.
Thank Goodness for Different
