“Literally within 2 days his attitude toward school in general completely changed. He was excited to go to school.”
My son, Luke, was 4 years old when we were introduced to Brain Fitness Strategies. I was eager to learn how to help my son adjust to stressors in a healthier way. He had developed a habit of laying down on the ground whenever he felt extreme disappointment or frustration. He would lay there regardless of the circumstances around him. This happened at school and church. For example, one day a child took a book away from him at school. He threw himself onto the floor and stayed there even as students began walking over him to get to their desks. Read More…Once he finally got up, he remained upset and had a bad day in the classroom. He was also very difficult to get ready for school in the mornings. He would say he was too tired, his clothes and shoes never felt good and he rarely ate his breakfast. Ms. Phariss tested him and determined he would benefit from exercises devoted to addressing the “fear paralysis reflex.” We did the exercises together. They were effortless. He immediately became more confident. Literally within 2 days his attitude toward school in general completely changed. He was excited to go to school. He jumped out of bed, got himself dressed, ate his breakfast and got buckled in the car- after telling his father “thank you for breakfast, dad.” My husband and I looked at each other amazed. It has been almost 4 months since we first introduced the exercises and he has never once thrown himself down out of frustration. The difference has been remarkable. It seems these exercises have allowed him to tap into a level of maturity that he didn’t have access to before. Numerous times while we are doing the exercises, he will stop and say, “I love you, mom.” He is definitely a happier child and we are very grateful.
