I have a lovely 5y/o son. He is very sensory sensitive-to tastes, smells,noise etc. He is also (hate to say it) very sooky and cries over very minor things like getting a scratch (barely visible), having to eat something he doesnt like, getting told off etc etc. I find this really frustrating and want to teach him to be more resilient without critisizing him or making him feel dismissed etc. He is a very sweet, caring, gentle boy but feel he just needs to 'toughen' up a little! Any advice?
