Teaching our children how to handle their big emotions starts with helping them identify how they are feeling and why they act the way they do. But what do we do when our children refuse to talk about their negative feelings — their Yuck — with us?
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why kids resist talking about their Yuck with their parents
- Long Game strategies we can use to make it more likely that they’ll open up
- What to do if they absolutely refuse to have these conversations (so we don’t feel helpless!)
