MEDITATION and POSITIVE THINKING AND SPEAKING For RAISING CONFIDENT CHILDREN

  1. 1. BY: VIOLETTE L. MEIER
  2. 2. Continuous contemplation or musing on a subject or series of subjects. Quieting of the body and mind in order to reflect on self, reflect on the world around you, or to reflect on spiritual matters.
  3. 3. Leads to a deeper level of physical relaxation Enhances energy, strength and vigor Brings body, mind, spirit in harmony Builds self-confidence Helps with focus & concentration Increase creativity Increased emotional stability Increased ability to solve complex problems Provides peace of mind, happiness Deeper understanding of yourself and others
  4. 4. Sit down. Quiet yourself. Use your imagination. Focus on something. Relax. Breath. Listen to soothing music. Pray, think, or just be still.
  5. 5. Sitting in your chair, imagine that you are sitting on a cloud. Your body is weightless and you can feel yourself floating on the breeze. The wind is a part of your being. The sun rays are shining from your fingertips. Sit there and take a deep breath in, feeling the breath move through your nose down to your neck then through your chest then through your stomach, your pelvis, your calves; move slowly to your ankles, your feet, and finally fading away into your toes. Breath out. Relax. Bring your hands down to rest on your lap. Think to yourself, “I am ready to listen.”
  6. 6. Children’s ability to manage stress, feel confident and motivate themselves in later life has a lot to do with their early childhood experiences. A person’s ‘self-concept’ is their sense of who they are and how they feel about their place in their family and community... Positive relationships between parents and children are an important part of building a child’s positive self-concept. A child who feels constantly blamed, judged and criticized may grow up to become an adult with a negative self-concept. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Parenting_communicating_with_ children?open POSITIVE WORDS ARE A WAY TO BUILD A PERSON’S SELF ESTEEM!
  7. 7. Most of us understand that our words possess the power to build people up or tear them down. Yet too often, we ignore that truth in the most important arena of all: our home. It is vital that husbands and wives speak positively to each other, and especially important that parents speak positive words into the lives of their children, even in life’s tough spots. http://www.joelosteen.com/HopeForToday/ThoughtsOn/Family/WordsToBuildAHome/Pages/WordsToB uildAHome.aspx
  8. 8. Positive, encouraging words help children to feel confident and happy. Suggestions include: Catch them being good! Praise them for tidying up their rooms or taking turns. Praise reinforces good behavior. Thank them for helping you around the house or at the supermarket. Let them know you have faith in their abilities. A child who is constantly told to be careful or that they will hurt themselves will eventually lose confidence in their abilities. Allow them plenty of opportunities to do things they enjoy and do well. Feeling competent builds self-esteem. Praise their efforts, not just their results. A child needs to know that it is okay to fail. Try to avoid constantly correcting your child’s mistakes. Trial and error are part of every child’s life. Your child may feel discouraged and hopeless if their every effort is graded and criticized. Separate the child from their behavior. Disapprove of the activity, not the child. For a child’s positive sense of self, it is better to say ‘drawing on the walls was a naughty thing to do’ rather than ‘you’re a naughty child’. Your child needs to know that your love is unconditional. Don’t assume that they know how much you love them – tell them often. http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Parenting_communicating_with_children?open
  9. 9. I deserve to be, I want to be, I can be, I will be, I am.
