Raising a Highly Sensitive Child

Tiffany Chi Photography | Fine Art Natural Light Maternity, Baby, Birth, Newborn Photographer
Orange County, California



“I don’t want to grow up, mommy,” she whispered, breathlessly choking back the tears that came like torrential waves.

I found her sitting on the stairs, back hunched, her entire little face buried in her shaking hands.

Beside her was a photograph of her that I had printed for her sixth birthday, and another one of her holding her newborn brother at five days old. In the photograph, she had the most prideful happy grin, and in the bottom corner, a little stain from where a tear had fallen and a crease from where her hand had held it.

We had spent all day cleaning up the decorations from her birthday party. We found popcorn kernels and crumbs in the most unexpected places, wiped down randomly sticky surfaces, detangled the string from the banners we had made, and cleared out wrapping paper and Amazon boxes.

But here she was, my highly sensitive girl — who we had somehow missed in all the chaos, trying to process her own heavy feelings about turning one year older. Is it possible that already at 6 years old, she can sense that her childhood is something to be treasured?

Aimee is sensitive, like me. She was born this way.
As a baby, she was restless, curious, and so observant.

Growing up, I was taught that my sensitivity was something to be ashamed of. Something to hide. I felt too much. All the time. Made too big a deal of everything. Constantly told to stop crying and get over it. Move on.

I refuse to teach my daughter the same lie. Sensitivity is not what makes her weak, it is what makes her really freaking brave. The opposite of sensitive isn’t brave, it is ‘insensitive,’

I’m finally realizing that my little girl and I — we’re not weak or fragile. We are seers and prophets. We slow down to notice the broken and hurting parts of the world, and within us, and that’s brave.
