Whether you are seven or thirty-seven, going back-to school can be stressful for a student with dyslexia.
It can also be stressful on the parents' of the student as well.
In fact, I find that I receive the most client calls at the beginning of a new school year.
Parents are ready for a fresh start and ready to create a change for their students at the beginning of a new school year.
Students who have learning challenges often have unresolved physical symptoms they are dealing with, as we know there is a connection with the mind and body.
Once a student is feeling challenged at school, and their anxiety has heightened, it is no secret that physical symptoms will appear.
So, of course children will complain of a stomach ache so as not to go to school. And, in fact their stomach really will ache, because their emotional needs are not being met.
If a student is having trouble in school, and instead of getting the actual help they need, they are instead being punished as if they are the problem themselves, of course this will result in a physical symptom. This would be the only logical conclusion that actually could happen.
A person can't deny their own reality to themselves without having a physical reaction. This is exactly the reason that when we tell a lie we feel sick to our stomach. When we don't tell the truth about something, we are out of alignment because our bodies always know and tell the truth.
In school if a student is not performing well and they are being punished because they are not learning the same way as other children, of course they are not going to feel physically well! They aren't making up any symptoms at all. This is just the body's natural way of saying, “Hey something is not right here.”
Wise parents will tap into their inner wisdom to find answers and help their children navigate life. Once, my child ran away from school. Literally. And a wise teacher said to me, "Listen to his actions/ This is a child who has com to school happily for two years. Now, he is going to a new school for three weeks and he is running home. That tells me something is very wrong at the school site."
I will never forget her words or her message.
Listen to the actions of children. Their actions will tell the story when something is out of alignment.
