The Child Essence has many and varied applications and is essentially an essence to normalise and balance extremes of behaviour. It is designed to give support for a child’s ongoing needs, throughout the years of a child's development.
For example, it is ideal for the shy, nervous child who needs courage and confidence, so give to a child who is being bullied. There are times when fear can be covered up with aggressive behaviour, so give for the squabbling, hyperactive and fractious child who needs to relax and calm down.
It's ideal for the toddler who has temper tantrums and needs excessive attention, it will calm them and help them to feel more loved and supported. Sometimes the problem is more of a family issue, rather than specifically the fault of the child. Whatever the details of the situation, this essence will bring comfort to the child who might be frightened by life circumstances. If the child calms down and is easier to handle, the mother will also relax and life will improve. Ideally the whole family would benefit from taking flower essences, but particularly the mother. The Female Essence would be a good choice, as it would give her the calmness and strength to cope better.
