Disciplining the Sensitive Child | Creative Child

This is such a brilliant article for those of you with highly sensitive children – my firstborn son is a brilliant creative, highly sensitive.   It was very difficult to punish him because he would always punish himself.  I had to be very careful.  If he got into trouble my task was usually to help him process that it wasn’t the end of the world because he punished himself far stronger than I could have.


Sensitive children tend to be very self-critical, so parental criticism is an especially hard blow, though truthfully criticism isn’t good for any child and is one of four behaviors parents should avoid.
