Empathic children are highly sensitive which makes them unable to manage their sensory overload at times. Their sense of sight, hearing, smell, intuition, and feeling of emotions are much stronger than others.
There is an ongoing misconception about empathic children. Our society and even schools fail to understand them. Because they are quieter, more thoughtful, deeper and gentler, unlike other children of their age.
Often, conventional teachers and physicians labeled them as ‘shy,’ ‘anti-social,’ and ‘fussy,’ and provide them diagnosis as having ‘social phobia,’ ‘anxiety disorder,’ and worst, ‘depression.’ I know as my child received her first diagnosis at the age of eight years old for Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Over the following years, she received additional diagnoses.
The role of parents is critical in supporting the natural sensitivity, intuition, wisdom, and creativity of empathic children. We must share the right tools on how to cope with the world. I have put together a collection of tips and tools. I understand because I am raisjng an empathic Child (now adult).
