Fufi and night fear

SELF CONFIDENCE

Autonomy as a tool to overcome some fears

To construct self-confidence, each kid needs for at least one primary caregiver (mother, father, grandparent, guardian …) to take care of him from earliest childhood and for so many years in the future.
Making your baby feel loved in his early years will mark the possibilities and difficulties of future adult self-love.
If we want to improve self-confidence in our children to make them feel happy, it is essential to love them responsibly and to encourage dialogue.
Growing up emotionally is not easy for anyone even in the adulthood. Among other challenges, it involves facing some fears gradually.

WHAT IS FEAR?

Is not an emotion, is actually an evolutionary period that all of us have been through

Fear has always accompanied human beings. Sometimes it helps us to survive, prepares us for attack or escapes from danger.
There are some fears really common in the childhood, such as the fear of darkness. Other fears, however, may come from the environment where we are living, from cultural factors or particular experiences of each person.
Previously, scientists thought that the brain’s limbic system was responsible for emotions, and these were beyond rational control.

HOW CAN WE DEAL WITH FEAR?

Discover this four activities to work with your kids

  • Representar el miedo: Si hacemos dibujos sobre lo que nos da miedo, escribimos sobre ello, o lo representamos plásticamente; eso nos ayudará a ver el miedo fuera de nosotros y poder pensarlo.
  • Jugar libremente: Sin que se lo propongan, los niños y niñas suelen traer a sus juegos, sus temores, fantasías y conflictos. En el juego pueden desenvolver su imaginación y pensamiento. Es posible que si juegan se sientan más aliviados o quizás, incluso, encuentren alguna solución frente a lo que temen.
  • Dialogar con los adultos que los cuidan: Conviene mantener una actitud abierta y tranquila para escuchar a nuestros pequeños/as y dialogar con ellos acerca de lo que les preocupa o atemoriza. El respeto absoluto a su sentir es clave para no lesionar su autoestima.
  • Acompañar amorosamente a los pequeños(as): La unión, la solidaridad, el abrazo son fundamentales para que nuestros hijos/as se sientan protegidos.
