Emotional regulation plays a fundamental role throughout the lifespan. Supporting your child’s regulation needs and emotional development in early childhood is an investment for later success. Strong self-regulation predicts better performance in school, relationships with others, and fewer behavioural difficulties. In this workshop, we will explore how children’s brains and bodies function in times of distress and how to support those big emotions. We will discuss a variety of strategies that will help you manage those tricky moments and walk away feeling more confident when supporting your child’s big feelings.
