How was your school experience as a highly sensitive person?  While highly sensitive children are often bright, energetic, creative, and empathetic, these positive traits aren't always recognized, or rewarded, in the everyday classroom.  On this episode, Michelle and the Captain travel back to their own school days, and discuss common struggles for Highly Sensitive Children, introverts, and HSS/ HSPs in an educational setting.  With depression, anxiety, and the suicide rate of children and young adults on the rise, a highly sensitive education that acknowledges different personality traits as well as the specific needs of highly sensitive children feels like a priority.  The conversation gets heated, but it addresses a topic that needs serious attention in education.
