Episode 281

When they are feeling big emotions, different children may behave in very different ways. Some children become “strong-willed” when they’re upset – they become resistant to us or try to make things go their way. Others act more “sensitive” when they’re upset – they become hard on themselves when they think they haven’t done something the right way. Despite the fact that these behaviors seem so different, “strong-willed” and “sensitive” children actually have a lot in common.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What strong willed and sensitive children have in common
  • Practical tips to help both types of children handle their uncomfortable emotions more effectively 
  • How we can help any child with big emotions become more confident in themselves and in their relationships
