Children as young as 3 years of age can learn to tap along themselves. Babies and toddlers are best helped by a parent gently touching or rubbing the tapping points.
Babies, toddlers, and children can benefit from EFT Tapping for a wide range of issues from physical upsets to emotional distress. EFT Tapping deserves to be in every parent’s tool box.
What can EFT Tapping for children be used for?
EFT can be useful for separation anxiety, anger, irritability, frustration, bedwetting, nightmares, sibling rivalry, picky eaters, nervousness, embarrassment, teasing, learning disabilities like dyslexia, falling out with friends, not getting their own way, fears of any sort such as fear of dogs, fear of the dark, fear of strangers, fear of the Dentist, fear of needles, fear of spiders….get the picture?…the list is endless and as Gary Craig says try it on everything!”
How to best use EFT Tapping for children.
With young children you can make it into a game and talk about the tapping points as magic buttons or magic spots. If a child is already tuned into the problem such as upset when you begin tapping you can just tap without the need for any words. The words are unnecessary because the child is already tuned into the issue. Meridians can be found all over the body so if your child isn’t quite tapping in the right place, don’t worry about it; EFT Tapping is quite a forgiving process and wherever they are tapping it will more than likely be close to one meridian.
Remember to use bedtime as an opportunity to tap with your child. Tap along as you ask them what was great about their day and what wasn’t so great.
