Episode 243

It’s almost the time of year when calendars are filled with holiday parties, end-of-year events, and large family gatherings. While some kids love these activities, children with big emotions often find them overwhelming… and their reaction can affect us as parents.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why kids with big emotions have a hard time in loud or crowded spaces
  • Why we don’t have to avoid situations that can be difficult for our children 
  • Tips to help our children (and ourselves) when they are feeling overstimulated or overwhelmed
