Helping Your Child by Helping Yourself

Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Every parent wants what’s best for their child: a comfortable home, healthy meals, a top-notch education, quality healthcare. As parents, we devote our lives to providing our children with everything they need to live a fulfilling life.

We want them to chase their dreams. We want them to reach their goals. We want them to live their life to the fullest. The only problem is…

We can’t always get what we want.

No parent wants to see their child in pain. No parent wants to see their child upset. Every parent wants to relieve their child’s suffering. No parent wants to be the cause.

Unfortunately, no matter how much you love your child, how much you provide them with, and how much you try to shield them from negative influences, there comes a time when every parent has to accept their lack of control.

Your child may be your baby, but they are also their own person. A person who lives and loves, laughs and dreams, and sometimes, hurts and cries. Many parents blame themselves when things go wrong in their child’s life, wondering what they did to lead their child to distress.

It’s time to stop asking yourself WHY it happened, and start asking yourself HOW to help.

Helping your child manage their stress and control their emotions starts at home.

Being a parent means being a role model. Your child sees how you react to situations and mirrors those strategies into their own schemas. They may be their own person, but that person begins with you.

If your child is going through a difficult time, learning healthy coping mechanisms and demonstrating them at home may be the best help you can possibly provide. By integrating positive changes into your life, you provide your child with a constant guide for a healthy lifestyle.

Be more than a parent. Be a leader.

A parent may not want their child to feel emotionally overwhelmed or upset, but every parent wants them to find happiness again. Teach them how.

CGI invites you to attend our energy yoga classes, where you can learn how to balance your emotions and stress. We also offer Kids Power Brain Yoga classes to help your child do the same, while fostering a positive self image. For more information, please call 201-784-1300.
