We all know what it can be like when our child has an emotional meltdown – and it can happen over the littlest thing – like the toast being cut the wrong way! What about the supermarket meltdown when you say “no” to the candies! At those challenging times it can feel like everyone is looking at you, you don’t know what to do to calm your child, you feel judged as an incompetent parent…and you just wish you could be anywhere but here? Right?
Then there are the constant arguments over screen time. The research is clear – excessive screen time is harmful for children – but tell that to a child who is enjoying a game and you take iPad away or you ask your teen to end the game they’re playing online with their friends!
What if there was a way to prevent melt-downs, flare-ups, and screen-time skirmishes. Well there is! To find out join Dr Rosina, entertaining and educational parenting expert as she interviews Sheryl Stoller, parent coach with expertise in supporting parents to help their children manage their ‘big emotions’ as she calls them.
In this show you’ll learn:
- practical and caring ways to shrink preschool emotions to a manageable size
- the simple steps that can prevent young children or teens being engulfed by big emotions
- the approaches can help you manage screen time and prevent screen-time skirmishes.
- How to support your children to develop self-regulation around their emotions and screen time.
Imagine how great life will be when your children and you have the life-skills to use emotions and screens well, rather than being over-taken by them. The younger the children are when we begin laying the foundation, the faster and more ingrained the healthy habits become. But it is never too late to start.
This is not a show to miss!
