My child is very "sensitive".
A lot of parents - especially the parents of boys -say this to me in a very apologetic voice.
Being sensitive is not a bad thing.
Crying is not a bad thing.
Being insensitive is terrible.
And not being able to express your emotions can be devastating.
Every decision must be made with the head - in consultation with the heart.
We must FEEL - before we DECIDE.
Do you have a sensitive child?
Do you regret it?
Do you think it is time to rethink our approach to this character trait?
Is it time to view it as a strength instead of a weakness?
