Publisher's Summary

Discover how to empower your children to believe in themselves.

Is your child having first school day jitters far too long? Does he cry whenever you drop him off at school? Does he clam up during recitations? Is he afraid of situations where there are a lot of other people? Have other people called your child "too sensitive"? Do you have children who cry too easily or have too many particular demands? Have you felt at a loss on how to confront your child who may be too emotional and flies off into tantrums easily?

This book is a product of my own experience of taking care of a highly sensitive and anxious child. Hopefully, the insights I have gathered from my personal experience with highly sensitive children (HSC) may also help other parents in taking better care of their child.

Highly sensitive children are more prone to social anxiety. These children may also experience a lot of stress when they are thinking of engaging in situations where they have to interact with other people. And this can be quite a problem when they start going to school or develop friendships. If your child is also a highly sensitive child, the anxiety may even be more magnified.

This book will help you understand your child's condition. I have my own experience of handling an anxious child. I have also experienced the difficulty of training my children in terms of developing social skills. This book will help other parents with socially anxious children cope with this condition. 

In this audiobook, you will learn:

  • How social anxiety develops in children
  • Various anxiety symptoms your children may be suffering from
  • Potential threats to development that may affect your children in their adulthood
  • Perspectives and strategies on raising a socially anxious child
  • Powerful words to say to your children that will surely boost their confidence
  • What a highly sensitive child is and what causes such a personality trait
  • Ways on disciplining a highly sensitive child
  • Proper attitude and approaches to adopt when caring for a highly sensitive child
  • Issues that may hound a highly sensitive child in his adulthood

Get this book, and you will feel more empowered in your parenting. Let me help you because I've been there, and I don't want other parents to suffer alone. Raise your children with an understanding of their situation. Let this book guide you as you raise your children to become resilient and confident - just as they are!

Good book

This is a good book if you have zero knowledge about HS Kids.
Personally I didn't learn anything new with this 2 books, I was hoping for more guidance about raising a HSP.
