Emotion Coaching for Parents & Grandparents

Emotion Coaching: Connecting When Children Have BIG FEELINGS

Children need to feel connected to the adults in their lives, even when they’re yelling at us to “go away!”. Our kids tend to have very intense feelings- anger, sadness, joy- and it’s our job to help them navigate those feelings and get their needs met in a socially acceptable way. This 2-hour class (webinar) will:

  • Help you identify your parenting/caregiving style(s)
  • Teach you how to support children when they have BIG FEELINGS
  • Give you tools to support children while teaching them calming and coping techniques
  • Explain how you can set limits on BEHAVIOR, while accepting children’s FEELINGS
