The horror of Nicholas and the devil: Do not let the children worry unnecessarily

Feast of St. Nicholas has many children associated with a reward, for those naughty parents they often hope to at least "regulate" behavior. For some children, however, this visit can leave a long-lasting trace in their fragile soul. How to deal with fear and its consequences with homeopaths?

An unexpected horror experience can especially make a long-term observation of the child, but it is equally true for adults. It may not just be a visit to Nicholas (and especially his helper helper). All life-threatening emergencies, such as (auto) accidents, assaults, encounters with death, serious injury to a person, or other very intense situations, may have similar consequences. Sensitive individuals may develop a condition called posttraumatic stress disorder.

Fear is not fun

Fear is an essential part of human existence and psyche. It is a feeling necessary for survival - it warns us of danger. In the case of a real threat, then the reaction starts "escape or fight" . In the Western world today, however, fear is not associated with either fighting or escape. The energy of horror then turns negatively against its wearer. According to psychologists, some form of fear occurs sooner or later in 90% of children. These are predominantly natural developmental fears, but in some children they can grow into phobias and severe anxiety. They then influence the overall development of their personality. For children, types of fear change during development. Their processing is important for the healthy development of the psyche and enables children to gradually gain independence. However, children are more susceptible to fear than adults. They feel small and defenseless. A strong experience of horror can thus be remembered for years. Children have far more limited possibilities to process their inner horrors. Therefore, parents should be very sensitive to childhood fear.

The manifestations of fear are found on the one hand on the physical level, but fears and anxiety as the state of the soul reflect on the behavior of the individual in question.
At the physical level, we experience increased muscle tension or tremors, increased sweating, increased blood pressure, accelerated pulse and breathing, nausea and dry mouth.
At the psychological level, it is a loss of concentration, a certain confusion and incoordination of activities, a tendency to isolate from society, an effort to escape from an unpleasant situation or placidity. Sometimes anger can also be a source of fear.
