Hi Everyone,

This brief example of using EFT for a routine, but important, children's issue is by Vikki Davison of the UK. Children often have difficulty following the guidance of adults, even when it is for their own good. This article has varied uses and can change many healthy behaviors of children.

Hugs, Gary

Dear Gary

We have had a great deal of success using EFT with my 18 month old grandson.  We have had some unseasonably warm weather here in the UK this month and as Joshua is very blonde and fair skinned it is important that he wears a sun hat when outside.  However, he hates wearing a hat and even through the winter we had to buy coats with a hood so that he had his head covered. 

Recently we had a very warm day and Joshua wanted to play in the garden but he would not keep his hat on.  Every time we put it on he took it off and threw it on the ground saying "No, no, no!" My daughter tapped on him that night before bedtime and on the following morning.  (He only lets us tap on him at these times of day).  She used the setup phrase, Even though I don't like wearing my hat, I need to wear it in the sunshine as the sun is hot and will make me feel poorly.  I am a very good boy and Mummy & Daddy love me very much. 

The following day, I was looking after him for the day and it was another lovely warm day.  When we went into the garden, I said, "Put your hat on Joshua in the sunshine.”  On went his hat and it stayed on all day!  He even wanted to keep it on when he ate his dinner in the evening!

Great stuff - EFT never ceases to amaze me!

Many thanks
