Have you ever wondered what very young kids think and how they are influenced? Try an all day Zero to Three intensive conference focused on military families, Veterans, and their kids! Dare to Care II.
Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques), or EFT, is such a great tool to use with kids. The very youngest may not understand the process, but I have learned and done surrogate tapping for very young kids. Boy, is it effective.
Basically, you are tapping on and for the child, for whatever their immediate issue is. Fever, pain, emotional distress, you name it. Surrogate tapping can be such a valuable tool to apply in these situations.
Have you noticed a grown couple in a store or parking lot, obviously having a heated discussion? Keep your distance and do surrogate tapping on their behalf. There can be some amazing and very noticible results!
You are tapping for them, on their behalf, sort of as if you were them. What would be their highest good at this moment? Go for that.
Same with very young kids that don’t verbalize yet. What do they need right now that they can’t access? Tap for them, gently on them, see the benefits just show up.
I’m looking forward to tapping with military family kids very soon. Who better to benefit from off-loading distressing emotional baggage?
