You shouldn't hypnotize anyone without the proper training. This is the problem with reading, often no context is provided. I disagree with this statement as well.

Hypnotizing children is about legal liability and informed consent.

A child in America can not enter into a legal contract. Therefore they can not waive liability, a parent or guardian must do so for them. (It may vary state to state but this is pretty close to across the board.)

While nothing is going to happen to their mind, (Heck all they are doing is relaxing and focusing.) in the context of a show (Which is what this board is about remember.) there are LOTS of things that can happen physically. For example falling and breaking a bone on stage is a VERY real danger. IF that happens it is possible most insurance companies won't even pay if it was a minor without parental consent. (Again that varies according to company and state laws.)

As for the context of a show to me, and it is only an opinion, it looks bad to do hypnosis with kids. It simply has an odd feel to it. (I mean under the age of 16 even.)

It is more that a lot of hypnotists have degraded the audience in the past and THAT perception needs to be gotten past. Bring kids up and it just seems weird without you being able to do much about it.

There are no extra "dangers" for children per se. Perception and liability are the big issues. I hope that makes sense.

All of the questions you've been asking will all be included and answered when you get professional training. Insurance varies based on where you are located. Also it can also be based on what performance material you include in your performance.

Impulse,

Attending a live training with a qualified instructor. Learn from someone who is out there really doing it and all your questions will be answered.
