The discussions revolved around four ideas – letting go off your own stuff, operating in the now, honoring the child’s knowing and mirror neurons and mimicking.

Written Testimonials


MagicHive
I have attended sessions with Subha during Dec 2011 till Feb 2012.

Before the sessions, I was a mom(my son is 5 years old) who would
1) Give directions to my child for every task
2) Praise him with adjectives ( excellent, good, awesome)
3) Instantly answer his questions ( load his brain with all facts)
4) Correct his actions than identify his feelings (Dont hit!!)

After Subhas sessions, I am a mom who
1) allows the child to experience the consequences of any task (subject to safety measures!)
2) Helps the child identify his strengths instead of using adjectives to praise him.
3) Allows the child to think and decide on his own.
4) Identifies his feelings before correcting the actions(Are you feeling angry?)

A child was teasing my son saying he was a baby driving on a cycle with side- wheels. I asked my son how he felt and what he wanted to do. My son drove away peacefully saying he would like to ignore. That is the power I have given to my child, thanks to Subha. Today, my son gives me choices to decide!!!
