DS is a very sensitive boy (he's 7). We had various issues with him as a toddler and pre-schoolder (speech delay, lack of comprehension etc) but lots of early intervention and he's generally caught up. He started school this year and is thriving at school He still happily watches ABC2.
However, if he watches anything with some drama in it then he's in tears. I took DS and DD to see the Tinkerbell movie last week. DS was in tears at the beginning and in at least 3 spots he looked away from the school, buried his head into me and told me it was too scary. This afternoon he was teary watching Fireman Sam when he thought Fireman Sam wasn't going to save the day. He's bright and social but I'm a bit worried about just how sensitive he is. (I realise I'm probably being over-protective of him, I'm most really just looking for some reassurance that there are other kids out there equally as sensitive as him.)
