NLP Tip -Making Your Child’s Problems, Phobias, and Limiting Beliefs Disappear

Bookmark and Share

Do you want your child to have continuing problems and/or to see him/her hold onto phobias and limiting beliefs that will hold him/her back from experiencing life to its fullest.

Unfortunately, many children do have these and, although no one leads a problem-free life, there are ways that we can help our children limit the problems in their lives by changing their frame of reference. This technique in NLP is known as reframing and it is very effective.

Reframing comes in two forms: reframing the content and reframing the context.

Reframing the content is simply changing one’s focus.
So, if your daughter comes home and says her teacher isn’t treating her fairly. She says he assigned her the most difficult topic on the list for a project the students need to do. After you talk a bit you realize the teacher is trying to challenge her more. You explain that she has very high marks in the class and that the teacher is simply challenging her because he wants to see her excel. Your daughter hadn’t really seen it in this way before and once she does she adopts a different content frame through which to view the situation.

Reframing the context means to take the behavior and look at it in light of the context in which it was used. In other words, it’s not what they are doing, but when and/or where they are doing it. For example, getting up and dancing in the middle of the school assembly is not appropriate, but getting up and dancing at the school dance is.
