Parenting a sensitive soul feels like a huge responsibility. We can’t make the world safe for our child, even though we want to, and we want them to reach adulthood with their gifts intact and available to them as much as possible, even as these gifts seem to be making life difficult for them. It’s gut-wrenching to watch them struggle.  It’s easy to feel helpless. The challenge is to be supportive without being codependent.  This requires a lot of self-care.  

Johanna Messer, author of Manual for Living Your Own Life and Freedom to Change, shares her courageous journey of raising a highly sensitive Starseed child and some of the tools she’s learned along the way.

In this enlightening and inspiring interview with Johanna Messer, you’ll learn:

  • What kinds of challenges (including ex-spouses and the “establishment”) you might face raising a highly sensitive child
  • What to do if your child sees ghosts, spirits or other things you can’t see
  • How to let go of codependent patterns that can interfere with happiness
