According to Ayurveda, every child has his/her personality traits, preferences, habits and a specific body type. These traits are determined by your child’s dominant dosha, and that’s why every parent should be aware of it. It can help you adapt to your child’s needs and keep their doshas in balance.
Here’s how you can identify your child’s dominant dosha
The Spontaneous Winter Child
A child with a dominant Vata dosha is like the wind, always moving. They are usually brimming with creativity, are sensitive and restless. They have a very short attention span and are easily distracted. They also tend to get overwhelmed quickly.
The Fiery Summer Child
Pitta dominant kids are dynamic, inquisitive, and strong-willed. They are inherently warm hearted and kind, but when they get angry, things can get ugly. Unlike the Vata dominant child, the Pitta child has impressive concentration powers and sharp focus.
The Steady Spring Child
Just like the element of earth, Kapha child is calm, steady, supportive and kind. They may take their sweet times to finish a task, but they do it thoroughly, reliably and accurately. Kapha children are emotionally stable and they enjoy spending time with their loved ones. They also tend to be slow learners but are methodical and steady.
In Ayurvedic medicine, an out-of-balance dosha can lead to numerous diseases and it can affect your child physically, mentally, and emotionally. Learning about your child’s Ayurvedic body type will give you actionable information on how to reawaken the body’s inner guidance system.
