INDONESIA:  Mothering A Sensitive Child

INDONESIA: Mothering A Sensitive Child

My son is not even 6 years old. He’s a December baby. Who knew this would be a dilemma once they’re around school age? This means that he either starts school a little early or a little late.

We opted for the latter.

Yes, he is the eldest in his class: K2. His physique looks bigger than those of kids his age. He is one of the taller and older kids in his class. Most people think he’s way older than 5 years old.

Yet he still has that babyish side on him.

Do I get frustrated? Of course!

He is a sensitive child, always been. He cries easily, and he tends to be shy around new people. This is something that I noticed since he was a baby.

Both of us, his parents, are very outgoing borderline crazy-loud sometimes! It  makes me feel guilty when I see him get so shy. Sometimes, he just shuts himself down, not wanting to say or do anything. When he was much younger, a full blown tantrum was a common, daily thing. These days, he prefers to just not say anything, closes his eyes or just pretends to be sleeping. (more…)
