What does courage mean to a child? Swinging from the monkey bars, trying out for t-ball or standing up to a bully? If you are the parent of a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), courage might mean something slightly different. That’s the premise of a new book by Sara Boyd, currently an “All or Nothing” project on Kickstarter, hoping to be funded by July 20, 2018.
Boyd, a writer and cancer survivor with a background in psychology & neuroscience, has spent the last decade teaching concepts of positive psychology. Her new book, The Boy Who Stood Up Tall, suggests that courage is “not always fast or loud. Courage is the action we choose to take, despite our fear.”
If that’s a premise that resonates with you, and you want to instill courage in your sensitive child, you should pledge to support Boyd’s book, as early supporters earn many different perks, including a “Bravery Pack” with 30 printable activity sheets that encourage bravery in your child, in addition to an e-book, for only a $15 pledge.
While, The Boy Who Stood Up Tall is primarily written for 4-8 year olds, the message about courage will carry well beyond this age group.
