Hypnotherapist for Child’s Emotional Development
You are probably juggling a lot of responsibilities as a parent, trying to strike that elusive work-life balance. As a parent, you rarely have much “me time”, and you probably do your best to get the job done, but sometimes you wonder if you are doing it right.
Every day, we see and read so much negative information about children and adolescents, discipline problems in schools, bullying, aggression, juvenile crime, home invasions, and so on. Among the statistics that we read were the prevalence of drug and alcohol abuse, sexual activity among kids, sexually transmitted infections, teen pregnancies, and mental illnesses.
Even though you wish you could, you cannot wrap your kids in cotton wool to protect them. Nevertheless, as a responsible parent, you may wonder if you are doing enough to prevent your children from becoming one of those statistics and to prepare them to deal with any negative influences they may face in the future.
Ultimately, it is not about doing enough - it is about doing what matters.
So what really matters?
Traditionally, child-rearing has primarily focused on academic achievement, preparing children for school, getting good grades to get into universities, and getting a good job.
Extracurricular activities such as sports, dancing, and music have helped students gain a sense of balance. But emotional development has been neglected.
Many people consider emotional development as being something that just happens - and it doesn’t matter, anyway. In recent years, there has been an increasing awareness that emotional development plays an essential role in every aspect of our lives, not just in our personal lives, but even in academic achievement and career advancement.
Psychologists and educators know now that overlooking emotional development can cause low self-esteem and well-being, which adversely affects school performance and behaviour.
What matters then is emotional development that builds self-esteem and emotional well-being.
How do you do this?
Self Esteem Parenting
Even if you promised to do things differently when you became a parent, you are likely to make the same mistakes as before. In a strange twist, you can make the same mistake that your parents did, but totally different so you don’t realise you are doing it.
This doesn’t mean you are bound to repeat the same mistakes your parents did. This means you need to be aware of the explicit and implicit messages of your parent’s behaviour and how to deal with them differently.
Sometimes, you can resolve problems with merely a conscious awareness of their existence and understanding of how they are contributing to current issues.
Various forms of psychological therapy can be used, and any of them will be effective as long as it can tap into your subconscious mind either directly or indirectly, and make changes there.
By enlisting the help of a therapist, you accept responsibility for making changes. It is an act of self-help and self-empowerment since a successful outcome can only be achieved if you accept responsibility and become an active participant.
During therapy, you will be empowered to accept responsibility for a problem and then be empowered to find solutions and change for the better.
