Sensitive children tend to worry more than their peers. They worry about the state of the world, the weather, their best friend, the ant that died when they accidentally stepped on it. In short, intuitive children tend to be chronic worriers. It’s only because they are so compassionate and empathic. But as a parent, you need to give them strategies to release these worries. Simply telling them, “Don’t worry, a tsunami will never come to us” will not suffice. To an intuitive child, their worries are very real and need to be validated.
Get your child some worry dolls, encourage them to keep a journal and let them talk about their worries with you. The act of writing down worries is very healing because it gets it out of our physical body.
