“How to Create Confidence in Your Young Children with EFT”
Dear EFT MindandBody Community:
Do you agree that children are amazing beings? If you are blessed with a child in your life, you have opportunities to inspire him/her to grow into their highest potential. Just think about it…you can help your child to be confident, to believe in himself so when he grows up he feels safe in the world and becomes a positive force in his community.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all parents and grandparents stepped into their roles knowing that they have the most important job that anybody could have, because when they emotionally nurture a child they are contributing to his/her happiness, vibrant health, worthiness, high self-esteem and inner peace. So please know that your role as a parent or grandparent is to love and accept your children unconditionally. However you won’t be able to do that, if you have not learned to love and accept yourself unconditionally.
One of our readers from Italy asked me the following question concerning her grandchild, I let her know that I would share with all of you, because it is an important question that can be of benefit to many.
Comment: Hello. I am a grandmother to a 1yr.3month infant and she is intimidated by my son-in-law. She started babbling some words, clapping, loved music, was happy until two months ago. Now she is silent, afraid, as if she learned that she is better off minimizing herself. My daughter does not see what I am talking about. How can I help her with EFT at this age, with a child who can not tell me what is happening at home? I am torn inside.
If you have noticed that something is wrong with your granddaughter you might want to consider taking her to her doctor to make sure that she is feeling good and that she is healthy. (of course, if her parents agree)
Please know that I am not a doctor or a pediatrician, I suggest energetic ways to deal with vibrational and emotional problems.
You might want to do EFT on yourself so you can always interact with your family from a place of peace and love.
“Even though I feel torn inside because_______________ I deeply and completely love and accept myself”
You can also imagine you are talking to a girlfriend and telling her all your problems and how you feel about your granddaughter and just tap on the energy points (while you are talking aloud) until you feel relaxed and calm.
Whenever you are with your granddaughter make sure that you play happy music and dance with her, sing with her, play dress up, do paintings, have ice cream, go for walks, just have fun with her.
Because she is very young, keep it simple, teach her how to tap on the energy points on her body. (Tap on yourself, tap on her, then she can tap on her own, copying you)
Tap and say aloud, she can repeat what you say (when she is a little older)
I am a great kid
I am beautiful
I am loved
I like myself
My grandma loves me!
I am awesome
I am wonderful
- I am healthy
- I am safe
I am so smart!
I am happy
I love myself
and other positive things like that.
Please remember, that as parents, and in your case as a grandmother, we model patterns, behavior, beliefs and language for our children, and then they just copy our modeling whatever it is. So make sure that your granddaughter sees you taking care of yourself and your needs, do something nice for you every day and have fun in your life. Do EFT to heal yourself and Love Yourself Unconditionally. Your granddaughter will then have the best model to follow!

I hope this information helps you and your granddaughter, above all teach her to love herself and take care of her needs, because she matters!
And to all you wonderful readers around the world, make sure that YOU take care of your mindandbody, take care of your needs, because they matter and you matter. It is a lot easier to give and take care of others when your own tank is overflowing with tenderness, gentleness, respect, acceptance and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR YOURSELF! Doing this, requires an effort from your part, and it also requires your willingness to heal your own childhood or adult traumas so you are feeling your best and you are feeling inner peace when you are interacting with children and others.
What if the secret to a happy life is this….Love Yourself as you are, take care of your needs first and then give from your overabundance of love….
