"To have an exceptional child you must be willing to have an exceptional child. You have one. And this book will teach you how to raise him to be not only exeptional, but healthy, loving, well-adjusted, and happy." Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D. Praise for The Highly Sensitive Person: 'This remarkable book speaks clearly to highly sensitive people. It gives a fresh perspective, a sigh of relief, and a good sense of where we belong in society.' JOHN GRAY, author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
15-20 per cent of children are highly sensitive - and they are often labelled shy, introverted, fussy or faddy. The real story is very different though and this practical book helps parents know what to do, when to back off, and how to ensure their child is given the right sort of treatment at school. It provides parents with insights and information so they can understand high sensitivity, and help their highly sensitive child thrive in the world. It is important for these children to be understood so they can be helped to avoid the common traps of shyness and withdrawal that many highly sensitive children fall into as they develop. It contains a questionnaire for parents to find out if their child has the traits common in highly sensitive children. It also discusses HSC's at different ages - infant, toddler, school-age and adolescent. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

What I particularly liked was her use of "scripts" and substitute phrases. My daughter has been labeled "shy" by others for so long that she has now internalized the concept. While I corrected people, I became befuddled, awkward, and resentful on her behalf. I wish I had memorized Aron's reply: "my daughter is observant and quite sensitive to her surroundings. Like other children, she will talk (or play) when she chooses to." How much more empowering that could have been (will be) for her.
Other aspects of note were the suggestions for taking breaks to de-escalate the arousal, and for increasing participation of the children in finding solutions to the problems they might be experiencing. These are not typical parenting techniques (e.g., respond immediately to the problem, set limits, be consistent no matter what) but Aron points out that escalation doesn't solve problems and children cannot learn in highly aroused states. I would add that there is a very large body of research on attachment that further supports the long-term emotional risks to relationships when children are in high states of anxiety, fear, guilt, shame, and even hysteria. As a PhD in child studies, it doesn't make behavioral sense to move your child closer when they are acting worse in time out. That is not how The theory of Extinction works. So I understand why some reviewers see this as coddling. But from other theoretical perspectives, moving closer diminishes the threat of loss, increases the bond, likely allows the hypothalamus and adrenal systems to re-regulate their flight or fight hormones, and re-establishes a base from which a dyad can connect and a child can learn. Without that connection and ability to learn, there is no point.
Finally, I think it has value in its ability to speak to the complex relationships found in families and across the developmental trajectory. Not all members in the family are Highly sensitive, so how they match (or don't) is important to explore. Sibling relationships are also touched upon, as well as different developmental stages, with specific insights for newborns, preschoolers, elementary, and teenagers.
My child's sensory and focus sensitivity increased after a concussion. I plan to share the Tips for Teachers as part of her accommodations at her new school. It makes a nice summary and will be a helpful point of discussion.
This books offers great practical advice for all age groups and covers all kinds of topics (food, sleep, leaving your child with someone else, how to build up self-esteem...)I have already applied some of the advice in our daily routine with a lot fo success. However, I also found out that we have already done a lot of things right intuitively. So not all of it is new information to me but it helps to have my approach confirmed by an expert because people (including well-meaning relatives) keep telling us that we spoil our child and should push him harder. As parents with a highly sensitive child we often feel isolated from other parents (who e.g. can take their children to an indoor swimming pool for the first time and their children actually don't go crazy because of all the new input) and it is simply nice to find out that all this is really not so unusual, that there are lots of other kids around who are like our son.
I recommend this book to anyone who suspect their child might be highly sensitive, but particularly to parents who have a highly sensitive child that is extroverted and expressive because I know how extremely exhausting life can be with such a child. My life has become a bit easier now that I have read this book.
