Big subject. All answers individual. Since, despite how we may behave, our children are other people, completely (except for support – both emotional and financial) responsible for their behaviour, their viewpoints and their life decisions. What may seem unworkable to use are quite workable to our children. This is where Hypnotherapy takes a different course. We could, of course, hypnotize our children but when we bring them in to the Therapist, the Therapist’s loyalty is entirely to their new patient, the child. Sometimes this still works anyway. But the point I want to make out is that we each (you) need to be putting yourself into a state of accepting our child’s personal choices more than we pretend to do. Hypnotherapy works for parents – just make sure that you don’t get in the way of your children.
