Parenting the Sensitive Child in a Noisy, Busy World

Dr. Fiona McConnell, Pediatric Associates

Does your child have difficulty transitioning, accepting unfamiliar foods, being in noisy environments, or adapting to changes in the daily routine? Does your infant cry easily or for long periods, or seem easily overstimulated? We will discuss what it means to be a highly sensitive child, deeply reflective, sensitive to the subtle, and easily overwhelmed, and we will discuss strategies for making the most of this special quality in a child at each age, infant, preschooler, school-aged & teenager.

Join us from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Thursday evening at Kindering Bellevue! Come as early as 6pm for mingling and light refreshments.

Individuals interested in attending may RSVP with Colleen Willisor leave a message at 425-289-7527 so we can ensure space is available.
