How To Help Your Child Learn How To Be A Sensitive Person

The ability to be sensitive is a gift that we are wired to pass down to our children, but we often get so caught up in being critical of the people we surround ourselves with that it’s difficult for our children to truly embrace and be an authentic human being. I’m going to show you how you can help your children learn to embrace the sensitivity in others, and more importantly, how to make others’ sensitivity the focus of their days. Here’s to better-rounded, human, sensitive people everywhere.

I thought of writing a post about how we are taught to be afraid of others in different situations. When people tell me they are afraid of other people, it seems like they are in some kind of negative mode. “I’m afraid of the unknown” or “I’m afraid of others’ reactions to me.” Or they may be afraid that their “sense of vulnerability” is not being validated by others. “What if I show the world how fragile and vulnerable my life is?” It’s easy for a person, who doesn’t know a lot about being vulnerable, to fear the world when they find themselves in a place where others can see and validate their feelings on things they are experiencing. We want people to approve and look at the person as better than they. We want them to love them unconditionally, when they can see that our vulnerability is something beautiful that we can be proud of. This kind of reaction makes some people feel like they are the only one who is scared. In order to understand this fear, you have to recognize the people who were shown to possess or express this kind of fear. For instance, the people who fear the stranger, the person they don’t know well, or the fearful person they know but fear them. They aren’t afraid of having a bad time, but there is an apprehension that something might go wrong if they’re not in control. They don’t realize that there is a safe place in the world.

This article shares more tips about how to instill a more accepting nature in your child. 

For my daughter, I thought about teaching her that the worst thing that could happen to her is to be afraid of something, and that she could learn from all of her “fear” with respect to how to embrace her fears. But I realized that teaching my daughter about these things wouldn’t fit into my day, and I really wanted to be a parent. So instead, I made her a video.

Here’s a video of my daughter using a few quick techniques (which she did by herself, and I helped her with a few of the techniques in the video) in order to teach her to be more open to experiencing fear.

I am currently teaching my daughter how to be a kind, loving, and accepting person.

I have also learned a lot of new techniques to get my kids to be more accepting of what’s going on in the world.

I have a great tool called The Power of Vulnerability, which allows my kids to have real conversations. This is so helpful for me as a parent because it allows me to listen and empathize with my kids. This is the exact opposite of what I’m usually doing. So it’s great that I no longer have to go to the library on Sundays to read about the things being discussed.

This is a piece I wrote about how my family embraces my kids’ vulnerability. In addition to teaching my kids that they can be vulnerable, they also understand the different emotions and states that they experience.

After teaching my kids to embrace their vulnerability, I would like to share with you my top 3 ideas to help kids become better people by the age 14.

My #1 idea is to take my kids to activities that are open to all people, regardless of whether they are black, white, Hispanic, Asian, gay, straight, fat, skinny.

I also believe that it is important for kids to grow up in a supportive environment where they get to know each other as people and learn to love and accept each other. I was asked by a friend if I would love to have black “sisters.” I asked my husband for his thoughts on these. He agreed this would be a great idea. “Black kids just need to know that they are accepted and accepted from us. That is why we all love them.”

To give my kids this confidence, I have created a black “sisters” folder in our home, containing folders of activities where my kids can meet other black girls. This has been absolutely life changing for my son, who previously believed that “all men are evil.”
