Does your toddler’s crying get you so upset you want to scream? Do you lose it when your little one has a tantrum? Children feed off our moods, so it is hard for them to calm down when we have “flipped our lid” too. But feeding off our moods also means that if we can keep calm ourselves, it will be easier for them to calm down too. This presentation will show you how the alarm system in the brain makes thinking difficult, for adults and for children. You will also learn some strategies to regulate your own emotions so that you can help your child learn to do the same thing.
