When you’re the parent of a Highly Sensitive child,
It’s hard to know where to draw the line on some things:

Or does their attitude come from their “strong willed” personality?
I can actually solve this one for you, very quickly.
Your HSC doesn’t have a respect problem.

Not from the desire to be difficult.
So, what is the solution here? Tune in to find out.
