I am thrilled that my first article on Huffington Post’s Blog went viral yesterday. I am so encouraged that SO MANY people are excited to know how to guide children gently and respond calmly and with kindness to their inevitable moments of dysregulation.
We can set GREAT examples of how to manage ourselves when we are frustrated and triggered. We can model compassion and emotional intelligence. WE CAN.
We can bring:
More listening and less telling.
More responsiveness and less reactivity.
More guidance and less control.
More curiosity and less blame.
More understanding and less judgement.
WE ARE DOING IT!
