Parenting a highly sensitive child can be challenging. During school breaks or other changes in routines, activities, or schedules, some signs and traits of emotional or sensitive children may become more pronounced. As a mom, these tips were so helpful to me to learn when my child was struggling with difficult feelings or thoughts and how I could really help him get through a challenging situation. #emotionalsensitivity #highlysensitivechild #emotionsforkids www.themidlifemamas.com

  1. Nature! Yes… of course I”m speaking of myself but it also works for my children. There is something so calming about the peace I find out in the woods…. definitely something I need more of this time of year.

  2. This is sooo true & wonderful advice.
    My child suffers from “SELECTIVE MUTISM” which is a social anxiety disorder. My childs anxiety is with adults. Was diagnosed from a pediatric neurologist and also sees a therapist. Plus with medication has made many gains, but still has issues. But with time and patience’s and LOVE you can get your child through this!
    Know its not them being defiant. It’s neurologic in the brain. That makes them become mute and unfamiliar settings. I think more people should be aware of this because it’s real. And sometimes heartbreaking as a parent to witness. But again with love and time your child will outgrow it!! ❤
    I know this is the real thing we live it everyday. I’m curious if anyone else out there has had their child diagnosed with Selective mutism?thank you for your time!

    1. These things are definitely so heartbreaking to watch as a parent, but you sound like an amazing mother! And, yes! It is so hard to always remember that their brains may be working differently – it isn’t always defiance! Thank you for your comment!
