Annotation

15-20 percent of children are Highly Sensitive -- and they are often labelled shy, introverted, fussy or faddy. The real story is very different though and this book helps parents know what to do, when to back off, and how to ensure their child is given the right sort of treatment at school.

Publisher Description

15-20 per cent of children are highly sensitive - and they are often labelled shy, introverted, fussy or faddy. The real story is very different though and this practical book helps parents know what to do, when to back off, and how to ensure their child is given the right sort of treatment at school. It provides parents with insights and information so they can understand high sensitivity, and help their highly sensitive child thrive in the world. It is important for these children to be understood so they can be helped to avoid the common traps of shyness and withdrawal that many highly sensitive children fall into as they develop. It contains a questionnaire for parents to find out if their child has the traits common in highly sensitive children. It also discusses HSC's at different ages - infant, toddler, school-age and adolescent.

Feature

  • It is estimated that 20% of the population (one in five) has the trait of High Sensitivity. The Highly Sensitive Person has sold 12,000 copies (10,000 in the home). Month on month is strong (400) and still improving. Highly Sensitive Person has been a terrific 'word of mouth' success - hugely popular with readers. This book was written after huge demand from parents who have read The Highly Sensitive Person, and who desperately needed advice on parenting HSCs. The The Highly Sensitive Person has now been translated into 12 languages. Audience: The parents of HSC's - who will find this book fascinating. Competition: Books like The Secret of Happy Children (Thorsons 0722536690) are the closest competition but there is no direct competition; no other titles address this big issue. This title was written after huge demand from parent readers of the Highly Sensitive Person. * Most books written about 'problem' children focus on more 'extrovert' unruly behaviour, lack of discipline or learning difficulties. HSC's typically are bright, with a 'quieter' set of concerns which, without attention, can still upset the child's development and future. This is a much needed book. Competition: No direct competition.
