As a HSP and a parent, I was very excited about this book I heard about it months ago and knew I needed to see what the buzz was about I devoured the information and felt a bit of camaraderie with the author Dr Elaine Aron deeply understands how highly sensitive people function and what we need out of life In this book, she took everything she discusses in her first and applies it to the complex, and often frustrating, job of being a parent While not much was new to me, as someone who has done their own research on the subject of HSPs, it is a great comprehensive resource for parents who are new to the idea of being a HSP Dr Aron explains the joys and frustrations of parenting and how it much different that task can be for us highly sensitive individuals With useful information and comforting analysis, she is understanding and sympathetic She takes the struggles many of us face and normalizes what many of us feel is abnormal or wrong with us I wouldn t consider this book profound, but I certainly believe many will find help and understanding within its pages.
Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Highly Sensitive Parent book, this is one of the most wanted Elaine N. Aron author readers around the world.
