Emotional Regulation and Your Child

How to help your little ones navigate complicated emotions

Things to remember:

  • Learning to manage emotions is a skill we all need to learn to be resilient and to have a quality life.
  • Understand your own vulnerabilities and communicate those with your child.
  • Post a scale in your house like, “The incredible 5-point scale” to help make talking about emotions easy.
  • When your child is experiencing a tantrum, stay calm and save the conversation until they have calmed down. Instead, validate, accept and empathize.
