PREVIEW: How Energy Transfers to our Children by Sue DeCaro

All the energy that we, as parents, bring to every situation and experience is energy that they often absorb. What kind of energy do we want our children to absorb from us?

As our children are growing and learning, our response to them is crucial. Reflecting on my own experiences, I can remember when my children were young and they would fall and bruise their knee. My response to this situation could either make it worse and alarming, or just as is, a bruise. For example, if I gasp loudly and quickly run to their aid, asking “oh my goodness, are you okay,” it gives children the idea that they are not “okay.” This is how the transference of our energy begins, just from a typically natural reaction. If we remain or stay neutral and calm in these situations, we can focus on what is, without bringing any added energy to the situation.

During many sessions with my clients, we discuss how our heart and our emotions are incredibly affected by all that occurs. Elizabeth Stone says that “making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” I think this quote speaks volumes to how deeply we are affected by our children, which is why we react so strongly. When we are aware of this, we can make a difference in the way we react to and interact with our children.
