The Optimum time for Parenting with Self-Esteem in Mind, is Before Age 7.

Before age 7 building children's confidence and self esteem is crucial. Children under 7 believe everything they're told... about themselves and about the world around them and they accept this as fact. This becomes their model of the world. Their brains are still in a hyper-learning phase with much slower brainwaves, called Theta. This is the same brainwave state that as Hypnotherapists, we relax adults to, in order to to access their subconscious mind and reframe moments that have kept them stuck.  This is why I work with parents of children under 7, to make sure we instil them with confidence and self esteem for life, as their belief systems are forming.

Why Courage is More Important than Confidence in Parenting

Taking bold steps outside our comfort zone takes courage -- and that's the deeper root of confidence, doing it from the heart -- giving ourselves permission to 'fail upwards' until we can.

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...

Survival or Growth?

 

As far as I'm concerned there are only two energies, there's fear and there's love.

At LaLa Tigers I'm passionate about helping children and parents understand that and helping them move beyond fear so they can thrive -- because you're either in survival -- or you're in growth.

You have to take care of yourself first



Sometimes we reach a breaking point, but that point can become a point of transformation when we decide to do the work on ourselves. When we heal ourselves, and put our self care first, then we can raise secure and confident kids.

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 ...
