Finding it tough to keep your child seated in one place? This is a typical sign of a pitta child. Though hyperactive, the child has a sharp intellect, an easy-to-handle attitude, and a playful nature. Their natural leadership skills ensure they have a fan following too!
Anger is something that pitta children cannot handle well. Their outbursts can be pretty aggressive. However, when in a good mood, they will endear themselves to you with their sweet and charming activities.
Ayurveda recommends the following to balance the moods of a pitta child.
To keep them cool, add fruits and vegetables, like cucumber, watermelon, and apples, to their diet.
Spicy or hot food is best avoided as it only aggravates their temperaments.
Not a huge foodie, the pitta child will eat only when it wants to, so don’t force them to eat when they don’t want to.
A good rub with coconut oil soothes the pitta child.
To lighten the mood, use gentle fragrances around the house like lavender, sandalwood, or jasmine.
Give them wide, open clutter-free spaces for all their activities.
Using pastel shades of green, blue, and silver in their surroundings, as well as in their clothing, keeps the pitta child in a happy frame of mind.
A silent walk in nature, or even some time alone, soothes them.
Teach kapha children meditation to stay calm.
Take competition out of their sporting activities as this stresses them.
The pitta child can be a handful one, but if these tips are kept in mind, their childhood can be an enjoyable experience for all. 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.
