Inner child work is a therapy or self-help practice that involves identifying and healing unresolved emotional issues from childhood.
It consists of connecting with and nurturing the wounded or neglected parts of oneself, often through visualization or other techniques, to promote emotional healing and personal growth.
Inner child work can help unresolved emotional issues from childhood that continue to impact a person's life well into adulthood. These issues can manifest in various ways, such as relationship problems, low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression.
What is the single biggest reason to avoid pampering our children? Our children are brilliant, expansive creatures of the universe that are limited when we serve them beyond genuine need. As parents, it’s our job to provide for our children’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. We often try to go beyond that and provide them the material items, experiences and opportunities that we may have never had. It’s natural to want to give them the life we always dreamed of having ourselves, but at what price? When we think that we are helping them, we may actually be hindering their long-term growth potential.
