December 12 - Responding to Strong Emotions
A 4 year old doesn't understand why they can't have another cookie. An 8 year old is upset that mom or dad has to go to work and they have to leave the playground early. As a parent, what is the best way to respond to our child's strong emotions? In this workshop begin to cover the topic of understanding feelings and discuss options for dealing with your child when he/she is feeling scared, mad, sad, etc.
