Parenting Tip: How to Positively Deal with Your Child's Emotions

Sep 11, 2020
Teacher wisdom from Dr. Rebecca Branstetter: 

Kids can sometimes ask for love and connection in unloveable ways.

When your child is experiencing big feelings they can't cope with them on their own, they express themselves through behavior you may not like. This behavior is actually a form of communication that you as a parent or caregiver need to tune into.‚Äč In this video, Dr. Rebecca Branstetter explains why empathy is the fastest route to helping your child calm down. 

Dr. Rebecca Branstetter's five-day course, Peace of Mind Parenting, debuts on September 14. Learn proven, effective, and protective parenting strategies you can use immediately to create harmony at home.
