It’s incredibly frustrating when we ask our kids to do something they don’t want to… or we tell them something they don’t want to hear… and they whine, complain, melt down, or become disrespectful.
Not only is it often exhausting to have to deal with their response, but their reactions can make us worry about their ability to deal with the fact that life simply isn’t always going to go their way.
However, there IS something we can do if we want to help our kids handle it when things don’t go the way they want them to.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why the strategies you’ve tried aren’t effective in helping kids deal with disappointment and frustration
- How you can improve your children’s resilience when they are in situations that are not going the way they hoped or expected
- A strategy (that is 100% in your control!) that will help your child handle the feelings that come up when things don’t go their way
