Do you have a child who experiences BIG emotions?
We are offering a 12-week class for parents of children who are “supersensors” – they experience the good and the painful emotions in a big way, and may take a long time to calm down. These supersensors are also often highly creative, incredibly intuitive, and care very much! Parenting a supersensor can sometimes require “superparents”!
