it was amazing
bookshelves: self-help

My mom handed this to me and simply said “This is you”. She’s totally right, and I wish she had read this when I was growing up. Since I’m not raising a HSC (I’m not raising any kids actually, and don’t plan to for a very long time) I just read it for the information, and I learned a lot about my temperament and how to deal with it. I’d probably learn a lot more if I read “The Highly Sensitive Person” though.

Just one tiny complaint: Beware of the author somewhat putting HSCs on a pedestal. There’s a little bit of the your-child-is-a-special-snowflake syndrome going on which kind of bugged me, but being one myself, I can’t say I disagreed with her. *wink*
