Free seminar for parents of sensitive children

Is your child a ‘deep thinker’ who:

  • Asks lots of questions?
  • Has intense emotional reactions to people, places and things?
  • Feels criticism, defeat and the distress of others deeply.
  • Enjoys quiet play more than big and noisy groups?
  • Actively avoids situations they find upsetting or overwhelming?
  • Becomes easily overwhelmed by such things as bright lights, strong smells, coarse fabrics, or sirens nearby?
  • Notices or enjoys delicate or fine scents, tastes, sounds, or works of art?
  • Has a rich and complex inner (or even imaginary) life?
  • Is sometimes described as highly emotional, introverted, picky, shy or even overly active?

Parenting a highly sensitive child can be extremely rewarding, however some mums and dads, understandably, find it exhausting.

Sensitive children are often have very specific intellectual, creative and emotional gifts that are not always well understood.

While they may be inquisitive, insightful kids who demonstrate genuine compassion at an early age, these intensely perceptive kids can also be easily overwhelmed by crowds, noises, new situations, sudden changes and the emotional distress of others.

If this sounds like a child you know, don’t miss Kids First’s next free Community Service Seminar, where psychologist Robyn Fallshaw will explain how to help your child to see their sensitivity as a strength.


Robyn-Fallshaw-PsychologistRobyn Fallshaw – Psychologist

Robyn Fallshaw is a psychologist with a special interest and many years’ experience in supporting sensitive children.

In her work with children and families, she has supported hundreds of sensitive kids and helped parents to better understand their child’s social, emotional and learning needs.

In this valuable 2 hour presentation, Robyn will explain the unique ways in which sensitive kids see the world so that you can equip your child to succeed at home, preschool and school.

She will share practical strategies so that you can become a ‘sensitive parent’ who knows how to help your sensitive child manage, and make the most of, their rich emotional lives.

How to support your sensitive child is best suited to parents and carers of children aged 4 to 12.
