Talking in your sleep: increasing your child’s esteem
Today’s parents shower their children with materialistic gifts. They get the latest toys, designer clothes, and even tickets to see their favorite cartoon characters. Some kids even have their own iPads (even I don’t have one!).
But if you could only give your child ONE gift that lasts a lifetime, what would it be? What is that ONE gift that will be left with your child when the two of you are no longer around? What would it be then?
As loving parents, they have done a lot of good, along with “mistakes” they never intended to make. Your little ones see you, their parents, as their everything. Your entire world revolves around you, your parents. How many of you have made such heartbreaking statements, in a stressful time, like “How could you be so clumsy?” or “Why can’t you be as smart as your sister !?” It may be something innocent that we don’t really mean, but it means a lot to the child.
Before you step in more deeply to harm your child, STOP! Never say negative things to your child. It may seem harmless or it could be some kind of joke, but a kid’s filtering system isn’t that strong yet and they might take that comment literally.
Take this analogy. When we buy a computer, it comes complete with an instruction manual with all the dos and don’ts. However, young babies come as they are. Many new parents are not lucky enough to have extended family members to help them out. Many practically come to parenthood with no idea what to expect! So how can these parents put their best selves into precious bundles of joy?
Sleep Talk ™ for Children is a very powerful positive parenting process. It was developed by Joane Goulding of the Goulding Institute in Melbourne, Australia. It works by imputing positive messages to a child’s subconscious mind that will give them confidence to face the world. The process helps with many childhood issues such as separation anxiety, bedwetting, habits, behavior issues, speaking, just to name a few. This procedure can also be used for children without any problem. It only takes two minutes each night to give your child positive suggestions while they sleep.
Think about it, what children say or the way they act are learned behaviors. Who do they learn from? So when you hear people say, never argue in front of your kids, it’s true! Children’s minds are like sponges, they absorb everything!
It is important to spend time with your children. Take them to the parks, go fishing with them, help them bake cookies, or even go to art classes together. Remember that what you invest in your children today will have a lasting effect on them forever. Spending quality time with them and letting them know how you feel is equally important.
With The Goulding Process – Sleep Talk ™ for Kids, we can give our children the happiness and confidence to face daily challenges when we are not there to “protect” them.
