As a caring parent, it is your priority to understand if your child is among the 20 percent of children born with a nervous system highly aware and quick to react to everything.
“The childhood of someone who is not recognized as a highly sensitive child is very difficult, and unconditional love for your children is not enough: You need to be prepared and know exactly how to raise them.”– Lara Clegg
As a psychotherapist specializing in supporting children ages three to 17, Lara Clegg has written this book to help highly sensitive children and their parents (whether they are highly sensitive themselves or not) make the most of this magnificent gift.
“It is no use explaining to them that they are 'too sensitive' or 'too shy' or 'too intense' because it will make them feel inadequate and they will try to change and when they fail to do so they will feel increasingly isolated and overwhelmed with shame.” - Lara Clegg
This unnecessary suffering, which the child will carry for the rest of his or her life, can be saved by taking the right approach.
Lara Clegg’s Raising a Highly Sensitive Child book approaches hypersensitivity in children in 19 chapters, which are bundled into three parts:
Part I - Understanding and Recognizing Symptoms
Part II - Best Parenting Strategies in Practice
Part III - Best Tips to Help Your Kid Handle This Gift
After listening to this book, you can recognize all the symptoms that your highly sensitive children have developed (such as discomfort to loud noises, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, insomnia, environmental and emotional sensitivity), helping them in their big challenges, such as the proper integration in the school environment and building true and lasting relationships.
