Ask Dr. Orloff
How do I help empathic children shield themselves and calm down?
Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,
My child is an empath. I have a group of empathic children that I support as well. Can you share with me techniques on teaching them to shield themselves and calm down?

Answer: Dear Eren,
How beautiful you are supporting empathic children. Teach them to breathe out negativity and stress whenever they pick it up and how to picture a shield of white light around their bodies when they are in stressful situations. Also teach them not to hug or look deep into the eyes of people who they get a bad feeling about but instead go towards positive people who have heart.
