AT A GLANCE
Have in mind the stage of development of your child and manage your expectations. Children learn how to manage their emotions in a different pace.
EVERY CHALLENGE BEHAVIOR (OR MISSBEHAVIOR) IS A TEACHABLE MOMENT.
Model what you want your child to learn. Children follow what you do better than what you say. Be a good role model.
Catch them in a good behavior and give always specific compliments. Let your child know how much you care.
Children can use calm down strategies like mindfulness breathing, counting down 10-1, emotional books, sensory toys, calm down jar...
Create in your home a private place where your child can feel safe to cope with difficult emotions.
A child with good self-management skills is more likely to have more socially accepted and positive behaviors.
