Benefits of Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP) for Teens.

A little brain science that could make a world of difference!

As parents, we will never stop worrying about our kids. It comes with the role and has its own unique challenges as our children enter their different phases of life. One such critical phase for our kids is their teenage years– the transition between childhood and adulthood. This is the period when they go through a physical, mental, and emotional change that can often be overwhelming for them to cope with. 

While our children’s development has always been and will always be a worry, it has become a growing concern for parents in recent years, particularly in the case of their teenagers. 

Learning to navigate life challenges no matter how old you are is never easy. But teens have extra challenges due to hormonal changes, a developing brain, the intensity of social interactions with peers, body image issues, over-dependence on technology, academic demands, parents’ high expectations and the list just goes on.  In this situation, teens may develop self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression, and allow limiting beliefs to make a home in their minds, which can significantly deter them from being their best selves in life.

So, how can they cope with the challenges of this critical phase? Well, they can’t completely eliminate all of the challenges, but they can equip themselves with long-term and effective tools to help them manage without allowing anxiety, fear, confusion, anger, and stress to rule their lives.

And, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) can be one such powerful technique for them. 

What is NLP?

NLP which stands for Neuro-linguistic programming is a self-development technique that studies the ways our thoughts affect our behavior. To break it down: 

“Neuro” is how we think, based on our values and beliefs about how the world works. It is how we interpret what we see, hear, and feel. It’s unique to us.

“Linguistic” is the words we use to express our emotions and the body language we adopt,  based on those thoughts. 

“Programming” is the outcome of what and how we communicate and the patterns of our behavior.

Using NLP techniques, we can become aware of this process, giving us the ability to change our thinking and behavior to achieve a better outcome.

NLP can help in changing habits and developing new patterns by examining how we think and making us realize that our feelings, thoughts, and emotions are not something that happens to us passively. It is something we can manage and control.

How can NLP benefit Teens? 

One characteristic of this age group is that they absorb new ideas and embrace changes and choices much more easily than adults do; however, this is a two-edged sword. Because they are so malleable in nature, they are quick to learn and retain new information, but they are also quick to allow negative thoughts to have a powerful grip on their mind. This is why introducing NLP during your child’s formative years can alter his or her life for the better. 

  • One advantage of NLP is that it is simple, easy to learn, and adaptable, allowing the kids to replicate it anywhere they are, whether at school, during play, or at home, making it a versatile and useful tool at their disposal.
  • The reprogramming techniques used in NLP can empower its users and help them to internalize their interpretation of external situations more positively.  It is about focusing on what we want rather than what we don’t want, on when things are going well, on what we do well, and on the framework of excellence.
  • NLP can also make the kids an efficient learner by opening up ways to create learning strategies that are unique to them. 
  • NLP would make your child better at emotional management. Like previously mentioned, teenage years are a critical period for kids emotionally and hence may develop anxiety, fear, self-confidence and anger issues. This is why teens often lash out, become aggressive when things don’t go their way and push away family members when they offer help. Using NLP techniques, kids would be able to navigate their way through negative thoughts, rather than succumbing to life’s challenges. They would understand that they would need to focus on thinking or reassessing their thoughts before reacting to certain situations or circumstances in their lives. Kids can live happier and more fulfilled lives if they are not constantly plagued by fear and worry. 
  • NLP techniques have been proven to increase self-confidence, provide people with a sense of purpose, and increase their focus on achieving their goals and following their passion. This is done by providing them with tools that will help them : 
  • Overcome limiting beliefs
  • Improving communication skills 
  • Increase focus, concentration and boosting self-belief
  • Manage their physical performance
  • Manage feedback positively to improve their learning.
