*FREE* Emotion regulation in your family - learning how to support your kids and yourself
Meltdowns, tantrums, explosions… whatever you want to call them, most kids have them, and they can be very frustrating to deal with as a parent. This talk will give you some information about how the human brain works and offer some ideas that might help you to help your emotionally dysregulated child. Cynthia will also talk about how unrealistic it can feel to actually implement these strategies as a parent, because the truth is that we’re not always emotionally regulated ourselves (often for good reason) and sometimes we need to help ourselves before we can help our kids. Cynthia will be sharing examples from her own life with two kids to help paint a picture of real-life parenting that feels both helpful and achievable.
