What are we supposed to do when our child is having a tantrum? Losing the plot? Going off their rocker?
Most of our responses – no matter how well-intended – can make things worse. We tell them to stop it, calm down, cut it out… and they don’t! They get worse! We send them to their room, take the iPad… it all backfires. Dealing with little people’s big emotions (and challenging behaviours) in the middle of an outburst is tough!
The tricky thing is that much of our children’s challenging behaviour (and our feeling that they are not resilient) has less to do with the behaviour we’re seeing, and more to do with the big emotions they’re feeling that we’re not quite sure what to do with.
Little People, Big Feelings is Dr Justin Coulson’s powerful guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. Once they develop competence with this critical life skill, emotionally intelligent children will feel more confident, perform better at school, have healthier relationships with others, and even be physically healthier.
This presentation equips parents with a five-step “emotion coaching” process that brings together the very best in emotional intelligence research from Dr John Gottman, the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence, and others to build children’s resilience, increase wellbeing for the whole family, and develop healthier humans.
