While all children tend to be dramatic with their moods, Kapha children have a tendency of being more subdued than the rest. Calm, collected and stable, they are easier to manage than more overly energetic kids. With Ayurveda, you can deal with your child and his moods better as Ayurveda helps you strategise your parenting keeping the child’s innate temperament in mind.
Children born with the kapha dosha can be recognized by their friendly, patient, and easy-going nature. But, the stocky kapha child can be slow and stubborn as well when out-of-balance. Once their minds are made up, these kids don’t change them so easily.
Usually of soft nature and easily adaptive like water when in balance, the same kapha children can be very temperamental and mulish when thrown off balance. Ayurveda recommends the following to balance the moods of a kapha child.
Give them fresh food.
Milk and milk products, as well as sweets, do not gel well with them.
If the child is temperamental, use strong smells like garlic, ginger radishes and collard greens to set the balance right.
Practice warm abhyanga daily to stimulate their senses.
Use strong aromatic oils like eucalyptus, cinnamon, clove, or marjoram to calm them down.
A kapha child likes to live in clean, uncluttered surroundings.
Keep the child’s space filled with bright and exciting colours, like red and orange.
Break your kapha child’s monotony with fun-filled activities.
To encourage them not to be couch potatoes, give such children outdoor games and exercises.
Give your kapha kid a healthy childhood so he grows up to lead a full, happy life. To know about your child and their dosha, consult a Jiva doctor. Dial 0129-4040404 or click on ‘Speak to a Doctor’ under the CONNECT tab in Jiva Health App.
