Does anyone HE their highly sensitive child?
We plan on home educating Rowan, who is highly sensitive/spirited. We have always said that we will home ed until he is about 7 then see how we are getting on.
Rowan is apprehensive in new situtaions and people call him shy, as with a lot of HSC.
However, I am curently reading the Highly sensitive child book and she suggests a little ‘trauma’ in the early years will beneift them in the long run, i.e: sending them to preschool for 5 mornings a week would be better as they are at least getting used to having to not be ‘shy’. Whereas keeping them at home is setting them up to fail. (not her words , but my interpretation)
Rowan has a very busy home ed life as there is a lot going on down here in the way of groups.
So I was just wondering if any of you mamas have a HSC at home and how you are finding it?
