Feeling joy, amazement, and comfort is wonderful. But what may happen if we forbid the child to feel and show disgust, anger, sadness, or fear?
● At the very least, there is a risk of burying any children's emotions. Kids who are prohibited to grieve often grow up to be adults who cannot cry and cannot even rejoice.
● Prohibition of negative emotions instills self-doubt. Whether you forbid your little ones to feel angry, they will feel it anyway. However, in this case the child will think that it is wrong and that his/her emotions have no weight and are not justified. Each time your child will doubt their decisions.
● Emotions that are forbidden today will always find their way out tomorrow. Feelings do not disappear without a trace. They get hidden deep inside and for a very, very long time affect all the spheres of our lives. Suppressed feelings can manifest as psychosomatic illnesses, develop into emotional hypersensitivity, or cause depression.
● Apart from that, this way you also hide your child's creative tendencies. Creativity can manifest only in an atmosphere of emotional freedom. Expressing yourself without fear of punishment or condemnation is the only way to be yourself.
