The Highly Sensitive Child: Helping Our Child Thrive When The World Overwhelms Them

This book shows how HSCs are born deeply reflective, sensitive to the subtle, and easily overwhelmed.  These qualities can make for smart, conscientious, creative children, but with the wrong parenting or schooling, they can become unusually shy or timid, or begin acting out.  Few parents and teachers understand where this behavior comes from–and as a result, HSCs are often mislabeled as overly inhibited, fearful, or “fussy,” or classified as “problem children” (and in some cases, misdiagnosed with disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder). But raised with proper understanding and care. Chapters address the needs of specific age groups, from newborns through teens.
