Episode 306

We talk a lot about big reactions when our kids have big feelings, but what about quiet, sensitive children who struggle when other people around them are upset? Often these children will do anything they can in order to make others feel better. To keep the peace, they will also disregard their own needs – even when we encourage them to stand up for themselves!

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why many parenting strategies don’t work with our sensitive children (and may even make things worse)
  • How to help our kids deal with discomfort — without hurting their self-esteem
  • The impact of raising confident, resilient kids who know how to advocate for themselves in difficult situations
