Is your child not doing well at school?
Has the school requested that they are put on medication?
Are you unable to cope with your child’s hyperactivity?
Does your child need professional expert hypnotherapy help to focus?
The diagnosis of Attention Deficiency Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is profoundly controversial in children.
When we look at comparatives between cultures where diagnosis is high such as the UK, US and Australia, compared with places where it is low such as Finland, we can see that possibly 9 out of 10 diagnoses are wrong.
Did you know:
- Many classroom sizes are far too large to facilitate each child’s needs.
- Often Schools prefer to have children on medication than pay for special needs help.
- Highly intelligent and hyperactive children often become destructive when they are bored.
- Tests for ADHD in children do not take into account social and family context and rarely criticise teaching methods.
Hypnosis can help train your child’s brain to operate more evenly and efficiently
In Finland, which has a diagnosis of ADHD of 1 in 1000 children, varying ages in a class, low number of hours at school, little homework and the highest exam results in the world, the average classroom sizes are 20.
In Australia when class sizes were driven down to 25 and children were given more homework, depression in children increased along with the diagnosis of ADHD.
Drugging children with medication that will cause a range of side effects for the rest of their life is not a solution to bored children.
Health professionals are, however, frequently locked into a system that finds fault with the child and not with the system.
Children need to be trained to use their brains to focus their thoughts and control their behaviors but teachers and families often find this too taxing to invest the effort involved in making this happen.
You may even not even know that it is necessary and possible so medication is seen as an easier option to kept your child quiet.
Alternatively, regular hypnosis and brain training can do a better job in helping your child, with no side effects.
The whole family must be part of the process of using hypnotherapy with the child
Change for your child needs to be systematic as it is not just the child that has to change but the family in order to support the child’s orientation.
Some parents can find this very challenging and insist they should not have to change in which case treatment will fail.
When parents come with an open mind to embrace all the changes we ask them to make, the treatment for your child is maximised and they are supported physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.
The change has to be permanent on your behalf, not just for the time of treatment but for good. This is why I ask you, the parent, to be part of the program. An unco-operative parent will sabotage the treatment and a co-operative parent will accelerate the change so the child can quickly learn to focus their mind and control their behaviours.
