“All You Need Is The Desire…With Hypnosis You Can Achieve It”

What brings about or exacerbates children's problems?

Much that goes on in our world can cause problems for children, just as it does for adults. Rapid physical growth over short periods of time, and concerns about changes in their bodies can cause stress and loss of self-esteem. Various problems in school, with studies, teachers or peers, may be troubling a child.

With children, the world revolves around them until experience helps expand that world. As they are the “center,” then everything is where they are. If there are problems in the family, they can take on those as their own. If parents are having trouble in relating well, their children can become fearful and guilty, as if they were the cause or should have prevented it in some way.

In school, common problems for many children are the loss of a friend who moves away, being shamed or frightened by a teacher or principal, boredom with school and having to make new friends. Unfamiliarity with schoolwork, or falling behind in a subject can cause excessive stress. The high standards a child has to uphold in sports or other activities can be extremely stressful. The insistence upon “correct” performance in front of others in a classroom can be very difficult for a child. Threats or bullying by other children, and the general fear and pressure of drugs and guns, in many schools, are serious concerns and add tremendous stress for some children.

News events on television, such as tragedies and terror threats are inundating our children, just as it does adults. Children are just as impacted as their parents by this constant onslaught of negative messaging.

How stress can affect children.

When children are experiencing unrelenting stress or are worried, whether or not they are conscious of it, there are warning signs to look for. Schoolwork may begin to slide. A child may begin to lose things on a consistent basis, become accident-prone, have headaches or stomachaches, bite their nails, pull their hair, or lose overall focus and attention. Other people notice a dramatic change in disposition. The child may begin to stop wanting to go to school, or begin to have problems in the classroom. They may lie and have other avoidance patterns. They may begin to have trouble sleeping.
