Indigos are different from ordinary children with their behaviors, postures, reactions and emotions. This difference inevitably requires different treatment against them. If you can analyze them and understand that you are an indigo and behave correctly, it is problem-free; not even thinking about having a perfect child. However, if you do not understand it or do not experience the necessary change, you have a child who ends up at the doctor and is likely to be diagnosed as hyperactive. Therefore, your position against indigos is important.
Indigos are more successful in an environment in which the limits on what is unacceptable are clearly drawn, but within which it is encouraged to explore and explore. This means that parents, teachers and caregivers must be able to establish and maintain strict boundaries, but at the same time have to be flexible enough to change these boundaries where necessary for the child's emotional / mental development, and indigos develop rapidly.
Nancy Ann Tappe states that there are some important points to consider when raising indigo children and makes recommendations:
• Be creative when setting limits. Let the child's power push the limits, not the child's power.
• Treat these children as adults or peers without giving adult responsibilities. Listen to them with respect and disdain, respect.
• If you tell them that you love them, but treat them with disrespect, they will not trust you. If you don't treat them lovingly, they won't believe you love them.
• Engaging and interacting with indigo children is both a task and a privilege. Take time to observe the interactions and interactions of indigo children; there is much to learn from it.
Discipline and Punishment
Punishment is not a method for these children. Punishment brings fear, requires judgment, creates angry intentions and invites more conflict. Discipline guides children by providing logical and realistic results. It shows them what they've done wrong, makes them claim the problem, offers ways to solve the problem they have created, and in the meantime doesn't break their dignity.
Most indigos do not respond well to orders. It is better to be a caring and trustworthy confidant and counselor than to be a strict discipline who listens.
The rules of an impeccable loving discipline are:
• Always inform and involve the child.
• Avoid potential misunderstanding with simple explanations.
• Do not react to your child.
• Avoid placing orders.
• Keep your promise.
• Resolve a situation as soon as it occurs.
• Do not hit your child or say rude words.
• Show your love clearly.
• If you are going to give him a sentence, do so when the child is free.
• After applying the punishment, speak thoroughly to solve the problem.
• Then, come together and try to find out if everything is working out.
