All kids make mistakes however if you have a sensitive kid then they may find this extra challenging.
My sensitive daughter made a big one this week! Thankfully, knowing about her sensitivity helped me to respond to her in a way that she needed so she could learn from the situation and bank this experience as a resource going forward.
Highly sensitive kids can be very self critical and even have perfectionist tendencies due to their brain based differences. This means that how we respond to them will either reinforce or alleviate their sense of shame.
In this video I share some easy but effective strategies to reduce perfectionism and help them embrace both their mistakes and big feelings that come with such experiences.
NOTE: These can be really helpful to do with yourself too!!! 😉
Stay Sensitively Strong!
With love always,
