Meet the needs of a highly sensitive child
- Show understanding and compassion.
When interacting with the child, use gentle and supportive language. Acknowledge their feelings and provide reassurance that they are safe and supported.
- Pay attention to the child's needs.
Observe the child's behavior and physical cues to understand their needs. Notice any signs of overstimulation or discomfort, and adjust the environment or activities accordingly.
- Encourage your child to practice mindfulness.
Encourage your child to practice mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or progressive muscle relaxation to help them manage stress and regulate their emotions. These techniques can help them connect with their bodies and emotions in a way that feels nurturing and supportive.
- Seek help if needed.
If your child is struggling to manage their emotions or cope with overwhelming situations, bring them to a mental health professional who can provide additional support and guidance.
