One of the many difficulties we face as a parent is when a child exhibits challenging behaviour. I’m not talking about the odd ‘strop’. I’m talking about behaviour which negatively affects their relationships with you, their peers or at school. Whether it is anxiety, social difficulties, emotional outbursts or any other behavioural issue, it can cause a huge amount of stress for both the child and the rest of the family. As a parent we often feel helpless and confused. Why are they behaving like this? What is going on? Is it something I’ve done or not done? Where do I go for help? Lets face it: we’ve all been there at some point.
One of the many fantastic things about homeopathy is its effectiveness in helping children with developmental and behavioural issues. From Asperger’s and ADHD to challenging behaviour, homeopathy can help children to overcome many of these problems. No child wants to be labelled ‘bad’ or ‘difficult’. Their behaviour has an underlying cause which needs to be recognized and addressed.
Sometimes the behaviour may be triggered by stressful situations such as a new school, a bereavement, a new sibling or parental break-up. Feelings of fear, grief or anger are normal, but can be hard to process in a healthy way. Homeopathy facilitates this process. It also treats inherited patterns of behaviour. We all know the phrase ‘Oh he’s just like his father’ or ‘She’s got it from my side of the family’. These inherited tendencies are very real but are also treatable with homeopathy. I see this all the time in my own family and in my practice. Your child will not become an angel overnight (that would be boring!) but with a few sessions you will see positive changes in how they cope with the world; they will be feeling less anxious, more confident and functioning in a more healthy way.
When your kids are happy, you’re happy. If your child is struggling, homeopathy offers both them and you a helping hand. It is natural, safe and effective, working on physical and mental/emotional issues without dangerous side effects.
Just to finish, here’s a great poem I found by Stephan Banks:
Loving the Little Terrors
Monday’s child is naughty as hell, stamping their feet and choosing to yell
Tuesday’s child is surely possessed, biting and screaming being a pest
Wednesday’s child has been a little brat teasing the dog and kicking the cat
Thursday’s child woke up in a really bad mood, won’t do as their told keeps throwing food
Friday’s child....well Fridays child is helpful, kind and happy 'I must say'
You know something I have been conned it’s pocket money day
Oh the joys and the happiness that the little terrors bring
You could never take away the love for your offspring.
