Making Sense of Sensitive Kids
Some children seem to be more intense and sensitive in their response to sensory stimuli in their surroundings. We can all feel overwhelmed at times but for some sensitive kids it can get very stressful, evoking strong emotions they don’t know how to make sense of. In order to help sensitive children live in their world we need to start by making sense of them and appreciating things through their eyes. There is much parents and teachers can do to help sensitive children find rest so that they can play and grow. Childminding Provided.
