Episode 235

Children with big emotions often experience overwhelming feelings when they are out in the world – at school, at events, at activities they do. Not only do they have to deal with a rush of big emotions, they also have to deal with other people noticing their discomfort. As parents, it’s natural to want to fix those situations for our children, but even our good intentions can lead to a cycle that can make them feel worse.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What makes situations so uncomfortable for kids with big emotions 
  • How suggestions to make things better can actually make things worse
  • Long Game strategies we can use that increase confidence, reduce shame, and lead to long-lasting positive results
