Many parents are unaware that children are very sensitive to their environment in their primitive years and the development of a child’s psyche can start as early as in the womb. They have the ability to sense the emotions and psychological state of their mother even before they have fully formed.
As a child develops they construct their unique model of the world by use of their sensory navigators to interpret and disseminate information. They look to the people who surround them as role models and use experiences as learning opportunities to measure between safety and danger. As they begin to understand language and behaviour, they form beliefs and values by drawing on what they see, feel, hear and touch.
In its infancy the psyche of a child or adolescent teenager is much more sensitive to emotional stress compared to adults. This is because in childhood the brain is still developing and may struggle to process a stressful experience or trauma in the same way an adult would. If a child experiences stress either at home or in school, it may be that their subconscious mind is unable to fully process the emotion surrounding it, resulting in a secondary problem such as erratic behaviour, anxiety, outbursts of anger or consistent nightmares. For this reason, early intervention with wingwave® is highly beneficial.
Although we cannot protect our children completely from stressful events, we can help them tap into their resources and reconnect them once more with their confidence. A great benefit is that children are naturally very curious and love to experience and learn new things, this makes it easier to give them the opportunity to try the wingwave intervention. The method is gentle, yet effective and can also be used playfully.
