  • How to Respond to Your Child's Emotional Meltdown and Help Them Grow
    • Be present: Remain in the room. Gently place your arm on their shoulder or hug them. Whatever they need. But be there. Don’t leave. You are their safety net.
    • Be flexible: Your child may resist your help, physically or verbally. That’s okay. When my son tells me to go away he doesn’t really mean it. In his case, he means “I need to see if you love me enough to stay.”
    • Be verbal: Give your child the words to name their feelings, while simultaneously acknowledging them: “I can see you are UPSET right now. You are ANGRY because I said you can’t have the sweets”; “You are SAD because our doggy as died. It HURTS inside and makes you want to cry”; “It’s FRUSTRATING when you can’t have the pen to draw on the wall, I can see that makes you MAD.”
    • Provide alternatives: Telling your child to stop physically is one thing, but they need to do something with that emotion. So provide alternative
