5 Steps to Helping Your Kids Calm Down – Manage Meltdowns
One of the most common questions that parents ask us is:
“How can I get my kid to calm down and not get so angry?”
Helping your kids calm down during a tantrum seems impossible! We’ll not only show you it’s possible, but tell you how to do it! All throughout the day your child feels new, strange feelings and they have to figure out what to do with them. That’s a big task for such a little person! Your child is new to dealing with these emotions and the rational side of their brain is simply not strong enough yet to reason with the emotional side of their brain. So during a tantrum, their emotional side is in full control…while their rational side is in the back napping. In order to help your kids calm down, you need to help teach your children how to manage these big emotions.
