Full Description:   

Children who are unable to manage their emotions are often overwhelmed by negative emotions leading to behavioral problems, tantrums and emotional outbursts. Attempts to soothe these children are often met with further emotional and behavioral outbursts, leaving parents feeling bewildered and helpless. Though children with intense emotions don't necessarily have a diagnosable mental health disorder, their emotional and behavioral difficulties lead to problems at school and home and put them at risk for anxiety, depression and other behavioral health issues.

Parenting a Child with Intense Emotions will help these parents accept, acknowledge, and de-escalate their children's emotions. Children with intense emotions often lack the awareness and verbal abilities to express themselves in coherent, understandable ways. In this book, readers learn a skill called validation that will help them find kernels of truth within a child's emotional outbursts and respond effectively. By learning the skills and strategies in this book, parents will become less defensive when angry feelings are aimed at them and better able to help their child express himself or herself effectively. Parents will practice mindfulness skills that will enable them to remain calm instead of getting caught up in the child's emotional storm. Included in this book are specific exercises to help parents practice mindfulness and validation so that these responses will become automatic for them over time.
