Your kids will buy what you’re selling when you are living what you’re selling. Your children may do what you tell them to do; however, ultimately they end up modeling your behavior.
So one of the best things you can do for your children is to work on yourself to shift the paradigms that aren’t serving you. If you do that, the rest will be relatively easy because…
Children get it much faster than adults if …
… the adults learn to give them the right information.
Whether the child is 3, 6, 12, or 17, you can talk to them the same way you’d talk to me. The only differences are their experience and their vocabulary. You’ve got to make sure that you use words and situations that they understand and relate to.
For instance, if you’re talking to a 4-year-old who is anxious about a future event, you might suggest that they close their eyes and look into the future and come up with something they’d really like to happen. Get them to engage their imagination because it is so rich at that age. Then, you might encourage them by saying that the two of you can work together to make it—or something similar—happen.
This kind of approach is very effective for young children; however, when they get older and go to school they’re taught not to daydream or fantasize. So you’d need to take another approach with a 7- or 15-year-old.
