Unfortunately, due to the current course of life, we often have to experience stress, which in turn is transmitted to our children. Kids become more nervous and anxious, it is an extremely negative impact on their health. Especially for children with high anxiety, there are a number of games that strengthen the nervous system.
I played these games with my niece Nastya, a four-year-old baby, they gave noticeable results in a couple of weeks. The girl stopped crying at night and waking up her parents, and also became more relaxed about going to kindergarten and does not avoid communicating with her peers, as before.
Game Gift under the tree. The main goal of the game is to relax the muscles of the child’s face. The kid closes his eyes and imagines the New Year holiday and the gift he wants to receive. At the moment when the child will mentally approach the Christmas tree, let him take a deep breath and hold his breath. Let him present the gift found under the Christmas tree and exhale.
After the exercise, you can discuss all the dreams of the child, if he so wishes. This game especially relaxes the muscles around the eye, as well as develops the imagination, the ability to express their thoughts coherently. This game can be practiced once or twice a week. You can even change the holidays themselves, for example, Birthday.
Game Fife. The goal of this game is to relax the muscles around the lips. Ask the child to bring an imaginary pipe to his lips, before that let the baby breathe a shallow depth. Let the baby begin to exhale slowly and as you exhale try to fold your lips into a tube. Repeat this exercise several times.
Game Screw. The result of this game is the removal of muscular tension in the shoulder girdle. The baby needs to put socks and heels together. At your command, let the whole body turn right and then left. The hands of the child must freely follow the direction of the body. You can include some kind of rhythmic music.
There is still a large number of games for children with high anxiety, but first you can try these. All these methods have been tried in my practice, I can add from myself that they act. In addition, they will give you and your baby a lot of pleasant moments.
