EP 14 - Parenting Your Highly Sensitive Child with special guest Asia Irgangladen and Purposeful Parenting Now
Welcome back parents!! Did you know that 15-20% of children are born with a nervous system that is highly sensitive? These kiddo’s are overwhelmed by high levels of stimulation and activity, they have a hard time transitioning and are super sensitive to the emotional distress of others.
Highly Sensitive Children are often quick to react to everything, although, get this; these kids would prefer to reflect before acting.
So parents, if you’ve been struggling with a child who is emotionally intense and demanding or maybe you have a child who is fairly easy to raise except when they’re with a group of children or people they don’t know, I have a great resource for you!
