Be honest (not guilty) with yourself. We often project our own fears and anxieties. Maybe you need to be kind enough to yourself to work on these patterns within yourself.
2. Is there too much pressure on your child to perform?
So many school children are being tested on their performance, it is unnatural to be so overly tested and compared. Social media (including TV) also encourages this. Begin by allowing your child to be themselves, and loving what is (not just another brick in the wall).
3. Are you asking your child to be the adult, rather than the child?
Often we are asking our children to be older than they are. Watch how many times you put the responsibility on to your child by asking them what they want, rather than being the adult and making decisions for them….even in the case of what shall we have for supper. This can be a heavy responsibility to be making the right choice, for the child.
4. Find ways to support your child, through play, remedial stories, Homoeopathy, HK and other body work to ease their inner tensions (and our own).
5. Realise that anxiety is normal, and this is part of your child learning to cope with life, we have to learn to cope with worry, boredom, fear, anxiety, depression as well as joy, unconditional love, friendships, excitement and happiness.
