Emotional Coaching





Learning to support your child’s skills in managing their feelings can really
come down to parents taking these three simple steps.
Particularly when we are trying to help our kids with their expression of anger
we should pay particular attention to the following:

  1. Take a moment to reflect on how you manage your own anger-modelling is
  2. Identify strategies for getting rid of the high energy that occurs in intense
    levels of anger and strategies or activities that could be calming to be used
    for lower levels of anger.
  3. Look for the emotion underneath your child’s anger and use empathy to
    connect with this. Anger is usually covering up a more vulnerable feeling.
    Taking these three steps will be very helpful in understanding and responding
    to your child’s emotions, which will ultimately lead to a more resilient young
    See how you go with these three steps!
