If one were to ask what the most challenging and daunting task is, the answer would be a hands-down unanimous one – that of being a parent. But don’t worry, you are not alone!

As a parent, we constantly worry if we are doing the right thing for our children. Right from what foods they should eat, the school they should go to, and the activities they should partake in. We constantly endeavor to give them the best. And we do this for their all-round development.

And despite all the love and care we shower our kids with, there would be times when we as parents say or do things we don’t mean, which we later regret. Harsh words, whether said intentionally or unintentionally, cause hurt to the child and damages the bond between the parent and the child. Not only that, but it also hampers the child’s confidence and self-esteem.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can also hurt me…
Cuts and bruises now have healed, while words are ghosts that still haunt me!!

In early childhood

So, how do we undo the things we say in a fit of rage or anger or just in a moment of extreme fatigue. Or sometimes, even if things told in a good way are perceived in the wrong way leading to an argument or a temper tantrum. After all, the mind is a meaning-making machine that only focuses on the content and never the context of what’s being said.

While the above is just one of the issues a parent and a child face, it is the cause of worry for the parent and distress for the child as well. Children look up to their parents for guidance and support, especially in their formative years, and what you as a parent say to or do the child stays with them forever. After all, a parent is the primary caretaker and influencer for a young child.

What can I do as a parent?

In addition to the many efforts that you take to make sure you are doing the right things for your child, there is one more simple, effective solution that you can add to your list. It is called the SleepTalk Process – not a therapy; it is a short, natural and ethical process that can help your child overcome a number of problems, issues, and difficulties without them or you having to lift a finger.

Scientists agree that a child’s mind is most suggestive when they are asleep. The Sleep Talk process takes only a few minutes at bedtime that negates the damage that was done earlier during the day, giving them the means to negotiate their everyday experiences and learn to be better from them.

What’s more, the process is non-invasive and non-intrusive and can be done in the comfort of your home. Watch as the process builds the emotional strength of your child, guarding them against criticism and fear. Watch your child become healthy, happy, and highly motivated to achieve their full potential and make the most of life. And most importantly, see the bond improve and strengthen between you and your child. Strong parent-child bonds that last a lifetime are formed through communication and meaningful time spent together, and Sleep Talk is one such simple, easy and effective way of doing just that.

What’s more, the spiraling ramification of the process can be seen in improved relationships between other members of the family too – between couples, between siblings, and even the in-laws, creating happier families.

We know how precious your child is – let us help you make them shine!
