Ep 134: Managing ‘Big’ Emotions

How a child or teen manages those ‘big’ emotions speaks volumes about their current well-being. I take a belts and braces approach covering why they may struggle with their feelings, how we ought to react in the moment, and how we can help them find more appropriate ways of responding.

Here are the highlights:

(3:15) What are big emotions?
(6:00) 4 principles of emotional behaviour
(11:10) Consider your child’s emotional stage not chronological age
(15:45) 3 things to do in the moment
(23:45) 3 lessons for after the outburst
