Reduce Stress in your Empath Child's Life

This is what you should say to your child if they are feeling overstimulated: Imagine a large dial on a table in front of you in your head. It has numbers on it that range from ten on the left to zero on the right.

This dial is now set to ten. Visualize yourself steadily lowering the dial setting, starting with 10. As the numbers become smaller and smaller, turn the knob clockwise to one hand until you reach zero: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. Feel yourself becoming increasingly loose when you turn the dial along these lines. You're de-stressing and lowering the stress levels. When you arrive at empty, you will feel calm and grateful.

If your child is too young to imagine this dial, you should draw a picture of it and make them point to their fear. At that point, eventually subtract them from your total until you reach zero.

The practical methods I propose in this section will make raising an empathic child a more peaceful and gradually blissful experience for your entire family. It's a gift to be able to contribute to the special needs of empathic children. Their puberty and adult life would be easier and more fulfilling if they can cope with their sensitivities right away. We are reminded that child rearing is a sacred responsibility from this perspective.
