Parents, it’s so important to continue validating your children. Especially right before they sleep. Fill your child up with positives right before they sleep, or while they are falling asleep. It’s empowering and will help build your child’s self-esteem.
When we are in and out of our sleep we fall into a state of hypnosis. That is a wonderful time to share loving and uplifting things with your child so that when your child sleeps, the brain will program all of the info and your child will wake up feeling on top of the world.
This can be practiced with all ages, especially adults. You will be able to sleep better, and isn’t it obvious? If we all beat ourselves up verbally right before we went to bed, I think we’d all have a sleepless night. Sounds pretty stressful and unhealthy.
Kids of all ages look up to their parents for love and praise. But if parents continue to remind their child of all their faults or negatives it can be damaging to their self-esteem. Therefore, your child could think, “why bother, I never do anything right.” “I always let my parents down.” “You could have done better, stop that crying or I’ll give you something to cry about.” These types of statements can go on and on.
Parents, please watch how you communicate with your child, if your child begins to display anger, don’t forget, they could be mirroring your behaviors, because anger is a learned behavior.
Praise the positives, nurture the love .... this will bring peace within your child’s mind and will help them grow successfully.
