My oldest child has ths to an extent. It's both amazing and heart-breaking. And, well, it's been pretty exhausting helping him navigate the world. Let's face it, we live in a world of sensory overload. For example, many children his age like to play suspenseful or somewhat violent video games or watch action packed movies. He just can't. It's far too stressful or upsetting. We also have to be very careful of our own emotions and tone of voice as he is so susceptible to them. Don't get me wrong, he's a great kid, does well in school and has lots of friends and activities, it's just...hard.
