Episode 33: Thrive in Life Show - Building Resilience in Kids
My guest Namita Bhatia explains why she started helping kids build confidence:
"Having worked in the corporate world for 20 years, I realized it was time for a change. When I reflected on my life and considered the times I had enjoyed most, I realized it was the time I had spent bringing up my children. I enjoyed overcoming the challenges I faced as a parent, and have achieved so much with them that I wanted to share these skills with others. So I decided that a career working with children made sense as the next step forward in life.
As a NLP4Kids Practitioner, I work with families who have identified that their child is not feeling or behaving as they used to. Often the anxieties children have, affect them in more than one way. Some may have problems sleeping at night, whilst others seem to have subtle changes in their personality that might cause them to become shy, refuse to go to sleep at night or develop anxiety related problems, have anger issues or behavioural problems.
Some of my work involves coaching both parents and child on an emotional level. At other times, we may need to look together into other health related triggers, considering your child’s diet and routines as well. I help children with behaviour problems, improve confidence and anxiety, to overcome their sleep problems and more. We find that very often these things are interlinked and making a change in one will have an immediate positive impact on the other."
In this episode, she explains how to build confidence in children and some of the techniques she uses from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). Here are some of my questions she answered:
- What is Resilience?
- Why is it important to develop Resilience in Children?
- Is Resilience related to confidence?
- What builds Resilience in a child and what do we need to know about building it?
- How can NLP help in building Resilience?
