Feng Shui is about using the environment of modify or change behaviour. As we know, it is part of the child development for the behaviours of teenage children to change. It can at times be quite bad. It is normal and natural and we have to accept it. We know that, there is a balance between the two extremes of “love” and using “punishment”. We have a narrow path to tread.
There is a technique that is not well used in the West for the improvement of behaviour. This is using feng shui in the bedroom.
How does this work?
Feng shui is a Chinese system of environmental management which developed with the rise of Chinese civilisation some 40 centuries ago. It is about managing the environment to change or modify behaviour. The suggestions in this article are about creating a “non-aggressive” environment. Also, the child’s behaviour will be more in keeping with the parent’s values.
It involves the re-decoration of the bedroom.
The room colour should be changed to a non-aggressive or neutral like beige or any earth tone. Do avoid pink or fuchsia for young girls – they will mature too early and possibly take up the trashy celebrity culture values. Also, do not have strong colours like black, red or blue as well.
Remove the aggressive images and change them to aspirational and positive ones – like sporting heroes, music and TV stars of good standing, even outstanding business people or scholars. Do emphasise the values of good morals and non- violence.
Clear the room of clutter especially things under the bed. Where possible, it is good training to make up the bed properly every day. Also, reinforce the habit of maintaining the room clean and tidy.
4. Position of Bed.
As part of the re-decoration, re-position the bed to point in the same direction as the parents. The child will come to have more similar views to that of the parents.
Having a teenage child that is behaves badly is a difficult situation for the family. This method is passive involves the bedroom where the child spends at least 8 hours in a day.
