Your Child's Mirror Neurons
Fallyn Smith (03:45):
The reason why we do this is because when we're here or your child's here, we're in fight, flight or freeze. Our whole body thinks we're being chased by a bear. All of the blood is rushing to our limbs. Our digestion stops working. So we need to help our body realize we're safe and we need to go back to rest and digest. So how do we do that? We take belly breaths because what it does is it stimulates our vagus nerve, which is a nerve that goes from our brainstem all the way down. And it hits all of our organs. And when we stimulate that vagus nerve with our deep belly breaths, that is telling every single organ in our body, we are safe. We can calm down. We are not being chased by a bear or whatever that is triggering us, right? So that's a really important practice.

And the reason why I say practice is because you can't just do it when you're angry, it's not going to work that way. It takes practice because when we're here, we're not thinking clearly. So every night I suggest parents with their children practice taking belly breaths, I'd say around five really important to practice. Cause kids are not going to be able to access it. And you aren't either. If you don't practice and bring that into your every day. So parents, if you have any questions, you can always feel free to reach out to me. My website is mindful kids, coaching.com, just remember, know your triggers, know what they feel like. So if it's weather a tightness in your chest, you know, if you feel like you're getting here model for your children, because they're sponges and they're watching your every move, take a belly breath, take a break. Nothing has to be solved right away. Just wait until you're here to have a conversation because when you're here or your child's here, problem solving can happen. And that's what we want. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out and thank you so much and have a wonderful evening. Bye-Bye.
