Children with big emotions like things to go the way they imagine they will go. Sometimes this makes them seem like they’re acting entitled, like the world revolves around them and what they want. How do we help our kids deal with their big feelings when things DON’T go their way so they can become more resilient people…now and in the future?
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Two reasons why children with big emotions may seem entitled or self-centered
- Practical actions we can take to address their long-term needs (instead of their short-term behavior)
- How using this Long Game strategy helps our children learn to handle a world that isn’t always kind
