how Channel your children's energy

7 tips 

Naturally, a child needs to move, even if we adults want them to be calm all the time. It's natural for a child to be restless after a long day at school. So how do we deal with it? 


What is excess energy?

Too much energy is reflected in body movements. Gestures that become jerky, preventing the child from concentrating and communicating with others.

How can I channel my child's energy?

According to child psychologist Florence Millot, the best way to channel your child's energy is to start by distinguishing between classic restlessness and what we call "over-energy ".

Then it's time tolook for the cause of the agitation. Why is my child excited? Why is he/she bursting with energy?

She also advises guiding the child in his need for movement, to frame his gestures and avoid any overflow.

How to guide the child's movement?

Take the initiative and suggest a game before he/she comes up with a crazy idea that will only increase excitement and perhaps mischief.
