I am privileged to be the primary carer for my two daughters and have been for over 10 years. I feel passionately about the role of being a parent and truly believe it’s the best job in the world. I am also acutely aware of how incredibly difficult and challenging it can be at times.
High sensitivity has a massive impact on my family’s life, and coming to understand the trait has transformed our lives – for the better. Before we understood high sensitivity we were bumbling about in the dark; now we’re in the light. I wish the entire world knew all about high sensitivity. What a wonderful world it would be if highly sensitive children and people were understood, accepted and truly valued for who they are.
All I can do is keep spreading the word, and hope that eventually everyone connected with children; teachers, health and medical professionals, care workers, parents etc. recognize without judgement, value and nurture highly sensitive children.
During my Daddy years I have developed mindfulness practices through art, meditation and as a way of being. More recently I have started to train to be an Integrative Counsellor.
