  • The bestselling author and psychologist whose books have topped 240,000 copies in print now addresses the trait of “high
    sensitivity” in children–and offers a breakthrough parenting guidebook for highly sensitive children and their

    With the publication of The Highly Sensitive Person, Elaine Aron became the first person to identify the inborn trait of
    “high sensitivity” and to show how it affects the lives of those who possess it. Up to 20 percent of the population is
    born highly sensitive, and now in The Highly Sensitive Child, Aron shifts her focus to highly sensitive children, who
    share the same characteristics as highly sensitive adults and thus face unique challenges as they grow up.

    Rooted in Aron’s years of experience as a psychotherapist and her original research on child temperament, The Highly
    Sensitive Child shows how HSCs are born deeply reflective, sensitive to the subtle, and easily overwhelmed. These
    qualities can make for smart, conscientious, creative children, but with the wrong parenting or schooling, they can
    become unusually shy or timid, or begin acting out. Few parents and teachers understand where this behavior comes
    from–and as a result, HSCs are often mislabeled as overly inhibited, fearful, or “fussy,”or classified as “problem
    children” (and in some cases, misdiagnosed with disorders such as Attention Deficit Disorder). But raised with proper
    understanding and care, HSCs are no more prone to these problems than nonsensitive children and can grow up to be happy,
    healthy, well-adjusted adults.

    In this pioneering work, parents will find helpful self-tests and case studies to help them understand their HSC, along
    with thorough advice on:
    • The challenges of raising an highly sensitive child

    • The four keys to successfully parenting an HSC

    • How to soothe highly sensitive infants

    • Helping sensitive children survive in a not-so-sensitive world

    • Making school and friendships enjoyable

    With chapters addressing the needs of specific age groups, from newborns through teens, The Highly Sensitive Child
    delivers warmhearted, timely information for parents, teachers, and the sensitive children in their lives.
