Trying to survive childhood…or parenthood?
Goals for Children
Often, parents bring their children in when they are worried about them or unable to deal with their odd or destructive behaviors. Children tend to respond to the work faster than adults, and this can be attributed to fewer unpleasant life experiences and fewer objections to new things, unlike many adults.
I enjoy working with children ages six and up, because the results can allow them to choose a dramatically new direction for their life from such an early age. This truly makes a distinct and positive difference in the quality of their lives.
Examples of goals children may have:
Control my tantrums and rages so my family is not in chaos
- Stop fighting with my brother/sister
- Heal my asthma/panic attacks so I can play soccer again
- Stop soiling my pants so I don’t ruin our family vacation
- Get back to school after being out again sick/injured
- Heal the hives that no doctor has helped me with
- Act my age instead of like a toddler
- Get my grades up so I can progress to the next grade
- Stop blaming my mom/dad/self for the divorce
- Stop crying over every little thing
Children have goals that are not so different from an adult’s goals—everyone wants to be happy, be successful and have an active social life. Although they are young, they also feel frustrated when their goals remain out of reach. I can help children find the way to heal what needs healing so they can move on to living a happy and productive life.
