Identify the child within yourselfAccording to the advanced applied behavioral sciences concept of Transactional Analysis, there are three ego states within every human being. These three ego states are the Parent, Adult and Child. The parental ego state is the sum of all influences that are adopted by us from our parents and we tend to behave like either parent, when we are just five or six years old. A fabulously memorial take on this ego state can be seen in the National Award winning movie, "Nayagan" by Manirathiram, the ace director. Kamal Hassan, the don would have two children. The first child, a boy would enact a role play when he will ask another boy of his age "what is your problem?". The Adult ego state is all that follows from a mature understanding of any reaction, that is expected of an Adult, while the child ego state, is all that comes from our childhood experiences. We tend to behave like a child, even when we are thirty years old.
Advanced search in behavioral sciences indicates thar the child ego state also includes the child-like curiosity and creativity that we tend to carry within ourselves. This gets a positive meaning when we start giving some shape to it. All out-of-box thinking comes only when we are in child ego state. Everything that concerns our natural behavioral responses and take us through a good journey of good and meaningful relationships with all who matter in our lives, happens only when we are able to give full expression to our child ego state.
The best of doing it is to have occasions when we start sharing beautiful moments of happiness with our family members and friends. It is that natural behavior that is dormant within ourselves.
Why not give that a serious try and get going?
