Do You Worry About Your Child's Confidence, Happiness, and Ability to Learn and Grow?

If so, then this book and the easy-to-learn tapping technique taught in it will change you and your child's life forever

Introducing Gorilla Thumps & Bear Hugs A Tapping Solution Children's Story By Alex Ortner, Executive Producer of the Tapping World Summits
I remember sitting on the couch with my wife Karen, having finally gotten our three young kids to bed, and saying to her, "Nobody told us that it would be like this!" We were heartbroken about a conversation we'd just had with our oldest son Malakai...

After having gotten our two younger kids to bed, Lucas and Olivia, we'd had a conversation with Malakai, 6 years old at the time, where he'd told us that he was nervous and scared every day at dismissal about missing the bus.

The chaos of everyone getting their things together, along with the muffled sounds of the buses being called over the loudspeaker, was putting him into a panicked state every day.

As parents, we have a constant desire to protect our kids, to keep them safe, healthy and happy. But the reality of life makes this impossible, and thus keeps our nervous systems — to put it mildly — on edge. :)

So what do we do when our child comes home anxious about missing the bus, or upset about being left out of a game at recess, or nervous about doing poorly on a test, or any of the dozens of other events that can happen to upset our child and throw off their confidence, happiness, and ability to learn and grow?
There is one simple technique that I have found to be instrumental in rebalancing my children, and those whom I've shared this with, that has been scientifically proven to work... and that's Tapping!

It's as simple as that!
According to a recent study by the American Psychological Association, almost one third of kids suffer from stress that manifests physically in the form of headaches, stomach aches, and more.
A further study by Stanford University in California found that the number of kids between the age of 7 and 17 who are suffering from depression more than doubled between 1985 and 2001. And children under 7 are likely no different...

The reality is that our children are under more pressure and stress than ever before (as are we as adults!). The childhoods we remember... are not the same as the childhoods our children are currently experiencing.

Which means that we as parents have a bigger responsibility than ever before to be there to help them as they move through the emotional landscape of growing up.
The good news is that there is a technique that is helping to drastically improve the levels of happiness and confidence of children in order to foster a healthy environment of learning and growing... and that's EFT, otherwise known as "Tapping."

Tapping is a simple but startlingly effective technique that has been taking the world by storm. Medical doctors, psychologists and therapists everywhere are discovering the amazing results that this technique is producing. And literally millions of people around the world are learning it and using it every day for themselves and for their friends and families.

And the best part: it's easy to learn and to use, and has virtually no negative side effects.
Tapping is the Most Powerful and Effective Technique Available for Helping our Children (and us as Parents) to Release and Overcome the Everyday Stressors of Life...
After listening to Malakai tell us about his end of day anxiety about possibly missing his bus, we knew that doing some Tapping would help. We asked him if he'd be willing to do the Tapping with us and he said yes!

We went through the Tapping process, focusing on how he was feeling every day at school during dismissal, and Tapping on each of the points he'd learned from the Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs book.

By the end of the process, he was feeling much better, and there was a clear difference in how he looked and talked about dismissal. He went to bed easily after the Tapping and after that night, we gave it a few days before we brought it up again.

But one day after school as I walked him back from the bus stop, I asked him, "How's dismissal going? Are you still nervous about it every day?" His response was just a shrug and a, "No, it doesn't bother me anymore." SUCCESS!! With just a few minutes of Tapping, he had released the stress and anxiety he'd been dealing with every day about dismissal.

I emailed his teacher that night, who was also keenly aware of his stress about the end of day routine, and she confirmed that he had been acting and feeling completely differently over the last few days.

These simple, yet extremely powerful shifts in our children's experience, can be life-altering. Think about your own childhood for a minute...
What Negative Experiences and Events From Your Own Childhood
Do You Wish You Could Have Eliminated?
Can you think of negative experiences that you had that changed your beliefs about yourself and the world? That hurt your confidence, or made you feel left out, or made you feel less than others?

Think about your elementary school experiences. And how about middle school? What was high school like for you? Can you think of any negative experiences that affected you growing up? I think we all can... :)

Imagine if you had been able to clear out those negative experiences, their negative emotions, and the limiting impact they had on you, back then when you were growing up, and been able to replace them with empowering meanings that helped you grow...

If you could do that for your child, to help them overcome their toughest experiences, wouldn't you take whatever action was needed to do that?

Luckily, Tapping is a simple, easy-to-learn process that you and your child can learn and do together, and this book is made to guide you to do the Tapping with your child in a fun, easy to understand way.

Here's How Tapping Is Helping Kids of All Ages...

Although this children's book is primarily for helping children at the elementary school level and below learn about Tapping, children of all ages use it and have shown great results with it.

Through our Tapping Solution Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization which I started with my brother Nick and sister Jessica in 2012, we've been working to teach children how to use Tapping both directly with parents and through schools. In schools, Tapping is being used from the elementary school level, to middle school, high school and also college. Tapping is allowing children of all ages to release stress, anxiety and other negative emotions that they're dealing with on a daily basis.
We documented some of the results that Tapping is getting in a middle school program in this short video. Check it out...

Here's How Tapping Can Help YOUR Child...
Tapping has been used with children, both young and old, on a multitude of different issues. Here are just a few examples...

  • Feeling hurt or left out
  • Sadness, grief or even depression
  • Stress and overwhelm
  • Anxiety
  • Anger or defiance and abusive and violent behavior
  • Low self-esteem
  • Struggling in school
  • Fears
  • Phobias
  • Guilt


Or even seemingly larger issues, such as ADHD, ODD or Sensory Processing Disorders...

You owe it to yourself and to your child to give this a try!

Changes in your child's behavior are often the first indicators that they are under stress, or that they are worried. These changes may include crying, whining, temper tantrums or angry outbursts, and acting out in frustration.

There are many things you can and should do to help your child recover his or her composure, but one of the first things, and perhaps the most critical, is to give them a sense of calm, to relax the tension in the child's body and mind.

Tapping can help you bring your child back to a state of balance so that they can be more resourceful, happy and fulfilled.

If You're New to Tapping, You May Be Wondering "What is Tapping?
Tapping, otherwise known as EFT, for Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a combination of Ancient Chinese Acupressure and Modern Psychology.

It was developed originally by Dr. Roger Callahan in the 1980's and modified and expanded upon by Gary Craig a few years later. Since then, thousands of psychologists, psychiatrists, doctors, coaches and individual users have adopted this powerful technique for use on themselves, their clients, family members and more.

This simple technique literally involves "tapping" on the meridian points of your body while focusing on your emotions or feelings, all with the goal of reprogramming the brain and body to obtain specific results.

The great news is that this children's book is geared towards making Tapping easy, fun and simple to do with children. It introduces variations on the names of the Tapping Points to make them easy to do with your child.
The Gorilla Thump points will have them beating on their chest
The Wolf's Chin Point will have them tapping on the chin point as they howl like a wolf
The Dragon Fire Point will have them pretending to breath fire as they tap on the under the nose-point


Each of the 9 points are introduced with a fun way to learn and remember them! So as your child is Tapping and having fun, they'll be releasing the stress, anxiety and other negative emotions they're struggling with.

"Overwhelmed parents will find that these skills can change the entire course of a child's life!"

"While Alex Ortner's charming book Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs turns tapping into child's play, there's serious science behind the method; it's been validated in over 100 scientific studies. Alex helps children remember this proven stress-reduction routine with his fun and whimsical images as well as the compassionate and wise words of his young hero Lucas. Overwhelmed parents will find that these skills can change the entire course of a child's life!"

Here's the Science Behind Tapping...
(For Us Adults Since Kids don't care about the science, they just know it works!)
Clinical research studies with EFT Tapping are providing impressive results in a variety of areas such as relief from chronic pain, emotional distress, addictions, phobias, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), athletic performance and much more!


"Tapping" works by sending a calming signal to the amygdala, an almond-shaped part of the brain that controls our reactions to stressful situations. Just a few short minutes of tapping on specific points of the body will quickly bring a sense of calm and restore self-confidence, both to you and to your child.


Here's one example of a research study performed...
Dr. Dawson Church and Dr. David Feinstein
Cortisol levels were measured before and after treatment

83 participants were divided into 3 groups:
The 1st group received an hour of Tapping; the 2nd group received an hour of psychotherapy ("talk" therapy); the 3rd group (control group) received no treatment.

The researchers measured cortisol levels before and after the treatment. Cortisol was measured because it is known as the "stress hormone" of the body. As stress goes up, cortisol levels go up.

The Results...
The 1st group (Tapping) demonstrated on average a 24% decrease in cortisol levels(some were even as high as 50%); the 2nd and 3rd groups showed no change in cortisol levels.

The reality is that psychotherapy alone relieves stress, but over a long period of time. The immediate benefits of psychotherapy don't register in your body, where excessive amounts of the "stress hormone" cortisol still run rampant, preventing you from being able to think clearly and make good decisions.
If your child is having an emotional challenge, you want to be able to help them immediately, right in that moment. Tapping gives you the ability to do that. To help them when you're there, and to give them a tool that they can use to help themselves when you're not.

And there is no tool more powerful and effective to teach both you and them how to use it than this book!
