A. This is not a problem because parents can present the Goulding Method with both/all children, and all children gain from utilising their full potential.
And there is no limit to the number of times it’s appropriate to tell someone you love them!
A doctor once suggested: the best medicine for children is love, and someone asked but what if it doesn’t work? The doctor just smiled and said: increase the dose.
Children usually gain the most assistance if they are between the ages of about 18 months/two years to about 14–16 years of age although this depends on the individual child’s development, both emotional and intellectual.
As a rule, by puberty it can be more difficult to get past the conscious critical analysis, which is too protective and well–defined or formed by the teen years.
If this is the case consider just presenting the Goulding SleepTalk Method from the doorway, you might find the child will transfer without you having to activate the awareness by stocking the RAS (Reticular Activating System).
The acceptance of the younger child is determined only by the ability of the child to understand the language. However positive suggestions both prior to and after birth are essential.
