My oldest child (DD- 5) is Highly Sensitive like DH and I were. It's hard and my patience is running very thin even though I know how she feels and I know I should sympathize. No matter how gentle we say it criticism sends her over the edge and she cries as if we have punched her in the face. Real tears with real pain behind it and I know it but I just don't know what to do. She thinks she can get away with things and she can't (like punching her baby sisters). Even if we don't approach her with criticism she still gets very upset. Even if we say "hey Lily what about taking a bath right now?" she wigs out. We've learned to really pick our battles but being HSC along with her iron will and always having to be right and everything always having to go her way... *deep breath*... it's just really hard. A lot of times she wants us to help her force her friends and sisters to do what she wants and when we won't she just breaks down. It's like she can't function unless things are going exactly her way.
She's of course not always like this. She does some times do what she is asked and is eager to help but most times not so much.
Anywho any help will be greatly appreciated!
