Founder of The Tapping Solution, Nick Ortner, provides guidance on how to use Tapping, to help solve everyday family issues.
Raising children is one of life’s greatest gifts and accomplishments, but it can also come with an overwhelming amount of stressors, anxiety and self-doubt. Am I modelling the type of person I want my child to become? Am I doing enough to prepare my child to strive in an ever-changing world? Are my children happy and confident in themselves?
In The Tapping Solution for Parents, Children & Teenagers, Nick Ortner encourages readers to first take a look at their own stressors and worry as parents, reminding readers that self-care is vital to helping others. In the first section of the book, parents are guided on using the revolutionary technique known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) Tapping to release parental overwhelm, quiet worry, manage conflict and transform their experience of parenthood.
In the second section, Nick explores specific uses for Tapping with children, ranging from releasing negative emotions like anger, fear and phobias, sadness, grief, guilt, and shame, to overcoming specific challenges such as anxiety disorders, sleep, nightmares, performance anxiety, bullying, school jitters, divorce and much more.
Through the use of diagrams, links to videos, and Tapping tips, The Tapping Solution for Parents, Children & Teenagers is an easy-to-use resource to solve everyday issues taking place in our homes.

"The two hardest things about being a parent are: How can we take care of ourselves when there are others who rely on us being present, and wondering if we're going to do something wrong to mess them up for life?
"Nick's work has helped our family learn the tools to help lessen the worry and fear around raising kids. We've used these techniques for ourselves to address our fears of being parents and to calm ourselves down when we're on the edge. We've also used tapping with our children to help our son relax when he's having a tantrum, and even using it to help our daughter with toilet training!
"We highly, highly recommend this book!"
