Children develop their earliest sense of self when they begin seeing themselves as reflected through their parents’ eyes. Children develop a positive self-view in supportive and nurturing environments and a poor or unclear sense of self in neglectful and critical environments. Some children are highly sensitive. They take to heart even mild corrections or redirections with a negative interpretation that is not intended by their parents. From the March 2019 issue of Go With That magazine by Debra Wesselmann, MS, LIMPH; Cathy Schweitzer, MS, LIMHP; and Stefani Armstrong, MS, LIMPH.
