The Highly Sensitive Child - Author Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
Helping our children thrive when the world overwhelms them.
Is your child .... Sensitive to almost everything - scratchy clothes, funny tastes, loud noises, a change in routine? A vivid dreamer, distressed by scary movies, or fearful in new situations? Prone to hurt feelings, upset by criticism and eager to do things just right?
As pioneering psychotherapist Elaine Aron shows in this groundbreaking book, if your child seems overly inhibited, particular, or you worry that he or she may have a disorder such as ADD or Asperger's Syndrome, he or she may simply be highly sensitive. And raised with proper understanding and care, highly sensitive children can grow up to be happy, healthy, well-adjusted adults. 331 Pages
"This book is amazing. I first read it when my daughter was two years old and I keep going back to it for sections now about older sensitive children. It has offered some fantastic insights into why she may behave in certain ways in certain situations. When I first read the book it was like a breath of fresh air to read about other families with children who behaved the same way and it was amazingly supportive and helpful. If you are finding lots of frustrating situations it can be really helpful to understand what may be going on in your child's mind (and I must admit it has helped me learn a bit about myself too!)." - M.
