Stay Calm Then Respond
Manage episode 261743239 series 2662684
Stay Calm, then respond. That sounds like an emergency message given on planes or something. But, it's not. It's something I've been saying over the years during my parent workshops on child behavior, to teachers, to everyone. It's something I will remind anyone of when dealing with challenging child behavior. Find your state of calm is the first step in guiding your child through any challenging behavior.
We are in a very unique time right now. As families still adjust and continuously pivot their daily schedule based on Covid-19, well there are definitely some challenging behaviors that will continue to arise. It's normal for young children to experience some behavior changes when their routines change abruptly or often. Young children thrive off of consistency and routine. When those things are out of wack they definitely feel it. They experience emotions that they don't know how to handle. In this episode I'm tackling how you can best handle dealing with all of these behavioral and emotional changes. The first step always starts with you. How are you finding your calm?
