Tapping With A Three Year Old

by Suze
(Wellington, NZ)

Hi Annie,

I just got your EFT For Kids Manual and have started tapping with our three year old. I've used EFT a few times myself but had not been very consistent in using it. But I have been amazed at how quickly it works with Christie.

She is really liking the magic fingers idea and we've tried it out a couple of times, and it has worked a treat!

The first time we did it after she had fallen off her bike, and I thought it would be a good way to distract her as well as teach it to her. She was very excited about having magic fingers and soon forgot all about the bike. (Don't really know if the tapping did anything at that stage)

Then the second time I suggested we use her magic fingers to help her at the playground. We have had an ongoing issue with her getting cross and pushing other kids, which to say the least is embarrassing. It had become a bit of a thing where we had been trying to prepare her in advance to behave better and it had got quite stressful. So on Sunday, both my husband and myself and her tapped away before we went to the park.

I actually think it helped OUR levels of stress with it all, we had got that it was becoming a bit of a mission taking her as we knew it would end in tears and having to take her home.

Well, the whole time at the playground she was awesome, no pushing and shoving, no bursting into tears and on the way home she kept talking about her magic fingers fixed the kids at the playground so they played nicely with her!!!

I'm definitely going to using this again! Thank You!
