Do you catastrophise? Choose confidence instead!

 

Want to know how to boost your child’s self confidence?


You don’t learn to swim by thinking about drowning. You won’t build confidence by thinking about fear. Focusing yours and your child’s mind on the power you hold in any given scenario is the best way to empower yourselves, and give your child a confidence boost that lasts. Are you ready to change the way you see things forever and raise a wholehearted, confident child or confident children who can live and love to their fullest expression?

 

 

 

Do you catastrophise? Do you find yourself thinking ‘what if..’ and then listing all the potential negative outcomes in your head? This just sets your mind in a loop of fear-based thinking, lacking confidence, and low self esteem. As an adult and a parent you have a responsibility to shape your child’s mind, and to build their self-esteem, and give them the tools to continue to build their own self...

Emotional Dysregulation Reframed

 

Emotional dysregulation in our kids and ourselves can show up as 'difficult' behaviour, early trauma leaves the body's nervous system constantly on alert for threat. Try changing your perception to see they/we are just having a difficult time instead.

Early Trauma and Perception

Trauma can be a single event, or a series of events where you don't feel safe. It's the effect that it has on the body; the sympathetic nervous system, endocrine system, immune system and memory. It takes time to heal, the earlier we start, the better.

Anxiety and becoming wholehearted.

The goal is to live without the shell and lead an authentic life. But this means we have sometimes change our environment. Parenting with children's mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing in mind means we have to be consciously aware of our own childhoods, our children's behaviour and how control is showing up, because fear is always so sneaky. When we are able to regulate our nervous system and brainwave state, allowing us to become an observer we can learn to take full responsibility for our anxiety and listen to what our subconscious is trying to tell us.

If this resonates, come find me in The Tribe, my free Facebook Group, where every Tuesday I deliver free training to help parents of under 7’s to find their own Fierce and raise wholehearted children who can live and love to their full potential.

Teaching Children's Mental Health With Music

 

With one in three mental health issues starting in early childhood, it is more important than ever to start teaching younger children about their internal worlds. The way a child thinks and feels about themselves, particularly before age 7 is a huge factor in whether they will live to their full potential.

Before age 7, our children are naturally in a theta brainwave state, which is essential for their development and for their survival.  It means that they can absorb lots of information which they accept without question. It's why childhood is so magical, they believe everything!

But the beliefs formed in early childhood, become our model of the world.  They become like the engine that drives all thoughts, which trigger our emotions, which then results in our behaviour.  Put simply, your thoughts create your perceptions and therefore your experience. It is vital that we teach our younger generation about hteir internal worlds now. Teach them that they are enough and...

The Art of Raising Happy, Confident Children

 
Happiness. Inner strength. Confidence. Self-belief. Self Worth. All the things that will have the biggest affect on your child’s life.
 
These things come from ways of thinking and ways of being that can be learned in our adult life. But what if we didn’t have to learn it at all? What if it was our default setting? Just the way we were?
 
You see the perceptions we form about ourselves, about the world, about who we think we are capable of, happen during the imprinting stage, which is before age 7.
These ‘beliefs’ form our subconscious programme and become the engine that drives most of our thoughts, which trigger our emotions on autopilot, for the rest of our lives.
These beliefs are so strong, our brains will actively look for evidence to support them and discount evidence that doesn’t.
 
So if you believe you are not good enough, not only will you look for evidence to support that, you will even...

Feelings and living to your fullest expression



Our emotions are a gateway, they govern so much...but underneath there are often wounds, and when someone touches on them we sometimes say they "made us feel" a certain way.

In LaLa Tigers we believe in taking responsibility for our own emotions.

When we tune into taking responsibility for our feelings, and choose to explore and feel them deeply, only then can we fully express our brightest selves.
