Highly sensitive children are prone to all the anxieties and

vulnerabilities you’d expect. But what may surprise you is that when

it comes to health, peer relationships, academic outcomes, you name

it, these kids can often do BETTER than their less sensitive peers. On

this episode of Quiet, host Susan Cain explores exciting new

research about these so called "orchid children" -- kids who have more

trouble when conditions aren’t ideal, but in the right environment

really bloom -- and she'll give you practical tips on how to

provide the fertile ground for your quiet child to thrive.
