Words of wisdom from Elaine Aron…..Acceptance is key.  Finding a school that allows them to behave naturally is important. Allowing your child to be who they are is essential. Being highly sensitive is an amazing trait and we should nurture it. Don’t you think?

  6. Hi Amanda
    I’m glad I found your post. I stumbled on your wordpress site while searching for HSP/HSC bloggs. I have been reading and re-reading the same message in so many posts; on so many websites. My biggest concern is the education system and how my HSB fits (doesn’t fit) within the mould of the schooling system; we have pockets of good teachers but we still have a little ignorance and an unwillingness to hear. We are just moving him he starts Monday – we got the green light today – to another school but, I am already thinking ahead to secondary school. His well being is paramount and unfortunately while some people listen many don’t hear. I really hope to educate the schools and keep educating until somebody understands the nurturing that is required; how much they will flourish if you treat them well. I look forward to reading more. Thank you
