Halloween is generally a time of great excitement and anticipation for children with all the talk of ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night.
However some children can feel overwhelmed with fear during and after the celebrations have come to an end.
With the help of Homeopathic acute remedies including these 5 listed below, these anxieties can quickly be eased in a short period of time.
Aconite is the first remedy to consider for very acute fear or fright when the child is overwhelmed with anxiety, panic and needs your immediate help. There will be a physical and mental restlessness, a great sense of agitation and nightmares.
The phosphorus child by nature is open and affectionate with a vivid imagination and lots of fears including fear of thunder, ghosts, monsters, noises, the dark and being alone. When telling of their scary experience they are wide eyed and you can’t help but be drawn into their very colourful story! They startle easily and will seek out your company and reassurance.
Coffea is a great remedy for over-excitement and sleeplessness. It is perfect for the child who is “overstimulated”, wide awake, restless, can’t be calmed, talkative and wants to recount the night events rather than sleep.
These are mild mannered and affectionate children. When frightened they become clingy, weepy and will not want to leave your side. They are soothed by a hug and reassurance.
A useful remedy for children who complain of stomach aches after overindulgence in sweets and treats. They may be constipation, grouchy, touchy and irritability.
It is not just Halloween that can cause anxiety and fear in a child’s world. If your little one is frightened by things that don’t appear logical or are difficult to comprehend, then a closer look at the problem with a homeopath who prescribes remedies specific to their needs is a great way to help them conquer their fears.
These might include problem such as nightmares, fears of undertaking new things or being in new situations, having an obsession with germs or illness, confidence and timidity issues or just general fears that seem to hold them back and interfere with their enjoyment of life.
