When your child comes to you in an uncontrollable fit of anger following an incident at school for example, how do you respond or handle the situation?

Do you get angry yourself?

Do you offer reassurance and try to clam your child down with soothing words?

Do you listen to their story?

Do you try and distract them from their emotions with another activity?

Do you try and offer solutions or help them come up with their own?

Do you dismiss it because in your eyes they are overacting?

Do you feel frustrated and powerless because you haven’t a clue what to do?

These might be some of the ways parents respond to a child who is in the middle of an emotional crisis. As parents who have experienced this scenario would probably know, it can take quite some time to get your child to calm down and furthermore resolve the issue, even with a lot of attention and guidance from you. If left alone to ‘work it out’, the child might internalize that anger, without having an appropriate means of releasing it. Sometimes parents don’t have the time, energy and resources to handle a child in crisis. With EFT as an intervention, your child’s emotional crisis can be dealt with in the moment and can be diffused within minutes.
