Children do not fully develop cognitive processes until they reach the age of 11 or 12. Until that age information is uncritically experienced by the child rather than being processed and critically evaluated. Children do not worry about the same theories and facts about the world. Because of this, they are more readily able to go into trance than adults. Their focus is very fluid and they can move in and out of trance states in a very natural and relaxed way. Hypnosis can work well for children, but only when practiced by a good hypnotherapist with a solid background in psychology.
