Often over the holidays — when kids are overexcited and more tired — we see an increase in negative behavior. 

And when we notice that our kids are overstimulated, we tend to ask them to “calm down,” and then we get frustrated when they don’t.

Instead, it is possible to help kids act more positively by addressing the cause of their behavior and giving them the tools to actually do what we ask them to do…making for a much more pleasant holiday! 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why kids actually CAN’T just “calm down” when you ask them to 
  • What you can do instead to help them transition from hyperactive to cooperative 
  • A simple trick to stay in control of yourself, even when your kids aren’t calming down when you want them to
