When your child is experiencing strong emotions:
- try to avoid sending them off in isolation.
- STOP what you are doing!
- Be FULLY present to the child.
- Get EYEBALL to EYEBALL.
- Speak SLOWLY and SOFTLY.
- SAY: “You matter to me! What are you feeling?”
- Help them to identify their emotions by learning about emotional intelligence!
