“In my world there are no bad kids, just impressionable, conflicted young people wrestling with emotions and impulses, trying to communicate their feelings and needs the only way they know how.”
– Janet Lansbury
In most modern nuclear families in India, parents are often working professionals with busy schedules and children spend their time at school, followed by activity classes and unwind with the television or gadgets. When a child shows noticeably different or disturbed behavior, the parents may try every conceivable way to help but they are often at a loss since children can have difficulty expressing their feelings accurately.
This is where Graphology, an often overlooked tool, can play an important role in bridging the parent-child communication gap. It might concern you when your child’s eating habits change suddenly, he becomes unusually moody, shows destructive tendencies or when he shies away from activities he once enjoyed. At times, asking your child about what is bothering him may not help because he may be unaware of his feelings and have trouble expressing them. A good graphologist can help you understand what your child is going through and try to heal the underlying issue before it becomes a more serious concern.
Simply defined, Graphology is the art of handwriting analysis. Graphologists study features of a person’s writing such as slants, dots, flourishes, spacing, pressure, flow etc. to tap into their state of mind and uncover the things playing on their subconscious selves in addition to their basic personality traits. Since one’s handwriting is influenced by their physical, emotional and psychological states, the changes in writing are a giveaway of what they’re going through at any point in time.
What emotional traits does ones handwriting express?
Let’s look at the following examples of Graphology applied to young children.
This particular child appears to be experiencing high levels of irritation in relation to his/her surroundings and is possibly mentally disturbed, which is evident from the inconsistent alphabet shapes and small spacing between words. The contrast in the length of the various letters also reveals aggressive tendencies.
The above sample is that of a child between 10-12 years of age. The most noticeable feature in his writing is how the letters slant to the left. This can indicate that child keeps his feelings to himself and is somewhat aloof. He may also lack spontaneity and come across as cold. The reason for the state of this particular child was that he was snapped at or ignored by his parents whenever he tried to express himself. If this problem is left unattended, the child can grow into a loner or possibly depressed adult.
Why is it important to invest in graphology for children’s emotional wellbeing?
There could be experiences in a child’s life which he/she may not able to able to share with his parents or teachers due to embarrassment, guilt or fear such as when he feels humiliated at school or is put to shame in front of his peers, when he is not very good at academics or sports. At times there are feelings that children don’t realize they are going through like low self esteem, anxiety, phobias. A child may also hesitate to confide in anyone if he has been sexually abused. In all these cases, children tend to internalize their feelings which could be detrimental to them in later years. This again makes graphology a great tool to help parents identify these problems and allow them to bond better with the child.
This art/science can also help a child in becoming the best version of himself. If one has athletic ability and interest in becoming a sportsperson but lacks the confidence to pursue their passion, graphology can help instill confidence in them through minor changes in handwriting.
The simple basis on which this science works is that one can communicate with and reprogram their subconscious mind through handwriting in the same way that visualizations techniques or hypnosis can.
Graphology is a useful tool for parents in identifying and understanding their child’s emotional issues and can play a critical role in ensuring the child’s well-being in the short and long term. I have learned through years of experience in interacting with children that parents need to be vigilant when it comes to their child’s mental and emotional health as much as physical health. Also, it is important to know that each child is different in his/her responses to the same stimuli. If certain aspects of the child come to the forefront at an early stage, parents are better equipped to make more informed decisions that can help the child grow into a happy and strong individual.
