Welcome To The La La Tigers blog

A glorious collection of musings from founder and MaMa TIger, Rachel Davis. Because perspective is everything.

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.

Children behave better when they feel better

Expecting children to 'behave' or even be in a position to be able to learn, when they are struggling with anxiety, stress or early childhood trauma is not viable. 
 
I invite you to think back to a time when you were stressed, tired, or in mental or emotional turmoil or distress.  Where you on your game? Were you receptive to learning? Or were you paralysed. Trapped in your head, going over and over things in your mind? Did you maybe snap at people, or lose control of your emotions. Were you easily angered? Could you focus or concentrate, or did the room seem to too small for your feelings and you just had to get the hell out? Did you sleep or eat well?
Did you want to go out and socialise with your friends and play loads?
 
I could be wrong, but I suspect not. 
 
If your child is hyperactive, melting down and seems unable to be still, focus or concentrate, follow instructions or is simply lashing out at others, it could be time to stop judging...

Attention seeking behaviour in children.

 

Is your chid using attention seeking behaviour? This means they are literally crying out for your connection, understanding and positive attention. When we bring our judgement, we kill any chance of being able to help them. The goal is secure, confident and resilient children and love for kids is spelt T.I.M.E.

The power of the mind and the power of music. A killer combination.

If I asked you what you wanted for your child, I know you would want your child to be happy, but I also bet you would want them to believe in themselves.  But what is a belief and why are they so important?

Our belief’s are the very essence of who we are. They are the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, what we are capable of and who we think we're going to be. And these stores are planted in our minds in early childhood. Between the ages of 2 and 7, our children are in a hyper learning phase called the imprinting stage, which is  essential for our survival. Our brainwaves are in theta, which is much slower than when we are adults and it makes us highly suggestible, but it means that we are absorbing everything around us and accepting it as fact.  It's one of the reasons that childhood is so magical. We believe everything. But that’s the good stuff and the bad stuff.  This programme is then what we use on a largely unconscious basis, to run ...
