NLP Parenting: Use Imagination To Create New Behavior Patterns

By Rachael Mah

How does the imagination help? After all, your imagination is just in your head, right? Well, it is in your head, but is has more power than you might realize.

Your imagination speaks directly to your subconscious mind and when you imagine something strongly enough your brain cannot tell the difference between the imagining and reality. This means that you will feel all the emotions associated with that imagining.

Let’s consider a situation in which your son isn’t getting his homework done. If that happens consistently, his grades will suffer. Let’s look at his pattern. He gets home from school, grabs a snack, and then sits down to play games on his computer.

This is not a useful pattern. He knows his homework is there, but he puts it off because the “negative” emotions associated with doing the task keep presenting themselves. He needs to change his pattern by using his imagination in a different way.

Homework Help

Help your child imagine a positive outcome to doing unappealing tasks

Instead of imagining the “doing” of the task, your son can imagine having the task done. If he actually sees his homework done, really sees that in his mind, he will then experience the feelings that go with that, as opposed to the experiencing the feelings that are associated with actually doing the work.

He can imagine a pattern that includes his homework getting done after school and his whole evening being free so that he can do whatever he wants. In other words, you are teaching your son to change the imagined scenario to invoke positive feelings instead of negative feelings. This will empower him to get the work done on time.

NLP Parenting Tips: How To Build Rapport With Your Kids

By Rachael Mah

You need to be on the same wavelength and your children need to feel as though you can relate to them and they can relate to you.

Developing rapport with a person of any age is important when it comes to relaying information and when it comes to creating a sense of trust with that person. It is easy as parents to forget to honor our children enough or to take the time required to move into the child’s world and meet them there.

Life is hectic at the best of times and slowing down to develop rapport with our children often does not factor into the equation. However, taking the time to do this makes a great deal of difference in your relationship.

In NLP there is a highly effective way to develop rapport with someone, whether that person is a child or an adult. This is called pacing. Pacing is a subtle, yet powerful form of mimicry that is not obvious to the person with whom you are establishing rapport.

That is to say that it is not obvious on a conscious level. However, pacing reaches the subconscious, a part of the mind that feels flattered by the attention it is receiving.

You see, making a connection with a child does not mean merely showing an interest in that in which the child is interested. Trying to buddy up to the child will not bring about the rapport you wish to build.

No, you need to move completely onto their plain, become part of your child’s world. You have to go to your child, whether your child is a toddler or a teen.

NLP Rapport Pacing

Establish eye-to-eye with your child to build rapport

Establishing rapport with a child with pacing is really very easy. You need to do two simple things that tell them that you are working with them, on their level. These things are:

1. Physically get down on the same level as your child (if they are smaller than you). If the child is older and bigger, sitting down at the table together might work best. This will bring you eye-to-eye with your child.

2. When you speak to your child, match their tone, facial expression, movements, and the rate of their speech.

Just doing these two simple things will allow you to establish rapport with your child very quickly. You and the child will connect immediately and then with the rapport in place, you can then work on whatever issue is facing your child.

NLP Techniques For Parents: Reading Your Child’s Emotional State

By Rachael Mah

Your children aren’t always going to come to you when they are struggling. As they grow up, they may be more likely to try to deal with things on their own or stuff them inside. They may feel too embarrassed to come to you for guidance.

It can be helpful if you are aware when your child is in a specific emotional state. There is a technique in NLP called calibration and it is a great tool when it comes to doing just that.

Calibration is very useful for the following reasons:

• By using it you will know if your child has a different emotional reaction to an old situation
• You will know whether the other NLP tools you have used are working
• You will know when your child encounters a new situation that brings about the same emotional state

Using calibration is very easy and takes just some observation. When your child is in a certain emotional state, observe everything you can. Let’s consider the example of test anxiety in your child. You must observe how your child is when in that state of anxiety. To do so, make a mental note of everything about your child.

Child emotional state

Are you able to read your child's emotions?

This could be his rate of breathing, the rate of his speech, his tone of voice, the way he holds his body, or anything else that stands out as being significant. You must also make sure to observe your child in a normal emotional state or in a positive emotional state so you can easily tell the difference between that and the undesirable emotional state.

Once you know these signs you will then be able to observe your child each time he is going to take a test at school. As you work with him with the other NLP techniques you will be able to watch him as he becomes more and more comfortable with taking tests.

Calibration is also useful because you will know when your child has anxiety about a different or new situation, such as trying out for a sports team, going on his first job interview, or anything else that might occur. This is especially helpful if your child is not the type to come and talk to you about his feelings and concerns.
