Parenting Highly Sensitive Children
Friday 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Childcare Room 2
In this applied, intensive course, you will learn about the needs of highly sensitive children and multiple parenting strategies you can use to answer those needs. One in four children has the trait of high-sensitivity, which causes them to react strongly to gentle reprimands, get startled easily, perceive others’ feelings, and notice subtle changes in their environment. The goal of this course is to acquire knowledge that you can integrate successfully into your daily parenting. Throughout the course we will work to integrate parenting strategies into daily routines. Expect to participate in a highly interactive learning experience, share your parenting experiences and actively listen to what others share, interact closely and cooperate with other mothers in the group, and spend an average of two hours per week outside of class reading, observing your child, and trying out strategies at home. This course is for any parent who desires to better understand their highly sensitive child, become aware of diverse parenting strategies to strengthen the parent-child bond, have support in applying parenting strategies at home, and connect with other parents.
Please Note: The last class is on March 22. This is a 9-week course.
