Consciously supporting children during times of crisis
Our children and young adults need deep understanding and tender care during these very challenging times. How can we, consciously, support them?
We may be feeling fear and anxiety in the face of recent and current traumatic events. But so too do our children, whether they’re little-ones or teenagers.
By recognising and responding to these feelings, with consciousness, we and our children will be supported and equipped to handle challenges today and in the future.
Children have a very sensitive ‘feeling radar’ which means they will pick-up on our emotions - even if we may try to hide them. What’s more they can’t help but be exposed to the non-stop media and discussion about illness, death and community hurt. But their filter for all this ‘noise’ is not as good as ours.
As a result, children, no matter what age, may be acting-out. Misbehaving, withdrawing, or just “feeling funny”. And they don’t know why.
It’s up to us. We understand what's going-on. And being consciously equipped will help us guide them, gently, through these troubling times.
In this Truth Talk, Isira will explain:
- The signs - What to watch-for if our young ones are fearful.
- How to talk to little children and teenagers about what we all are feeling.
- Some tools and exercises you can use to help bring comfort and reassurance.
A very special guided meditation
At the end of the Truth Talk Isira will take us through a guided meditation, specially developed for younger children (and all of us who care for them).
"Now more than ever, it’s time to wrap our arms around the
children and young ones we hold so dear."
Replay and Guided Meditation
A fully replay of this Truth Talk will be uploaded into The Awakening Place within 48 hours.
We will be making the meditation available separately for you to download and share with anyone. Imagine,
it could become a regular, calming practice shared by parents and their children at bedtime.
To access both of these you'll need to be a member of "The Awakening Place."
