15-20% of children are Highly Sensitive (HSC). If you are finding that your child isn't exactly "normal", much of the helpful parenting advice of others doesn't work for your child, and he/she often complains about some sort of sensory input (say loud noise, or tastes or smells) beyond what seems like a reasonable amount of complaining, you may have an HSC. This book contains a questionnaire that will allow you to determine if your child is highly sensitive. It also is full of helpful information in determining strategies to parent HSCs. It is well researched, well written, and full of examples. You owe it to your potentially highly sensitive child to do a little research before you allow "the man" to put them on ADHD drugs, which do help many children but are widely over-prescribed. This book is a great place to start in learning about HSCs.
