Your Sensitive Intense Child

Do you have one really intense child? Or a couple?

Almost every family in the Connected Families community has at least one child who is more sensitive and more intense than other kids. Often what “worked” for your other kids doesn’t seem to “work” for this intense child! 

Don’t pull your hair out in frustration or try to force a square peg into a round hole! Some kids are different. It’s a game-changer when you learn some new parenting skills and can truly understand and empathize with your sensitive and intense child.

You’ve got this! And we can help.
