The Highly Sensitive Parent
A few weeks ago I was invited onto BAY FM 99.9 on the Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond show to talk about parenting and the Highly Sensitive Person. In the interview we talked about what it means to be a Highly Sensitive Person, and in particular the highs of lows of being a highly sensitive parent.
HSPs make wonderful parents, they’re insightful and intuitive, but highly sensitive parents can often get overwhelmed by the chaos and intensity that comes with parenting.
Take a listen to my interview to find out if you (or your partner) is a Highly Sensitive parent, and what you can do to support and nourish yourself if you are:
The interviewer, Annalee Atia and I are both Highly Sensitive People, and just loved getting together to chat about this very important topic. Just minutes before the show started Annalee’s colleagues were called away, and for the very first time she had to conduct the interview AND press all the radio buttons to broadcast it to the world by herself (I was no help!).
The interview was a success, but the recording was not! So Annalee and I got together a week later in her beautiful home in Mullumbimby to re-record this interview, so we could share it with you. I do hope you enjoy it.
