MindFull Minute #2: Are You Emotionally Regulated? [VLOG]

July 1, 2019

 

Dear parents,

 

When your child is being oppositional, disrespectful, or acting on an emotional impulse in a heated moment, how do you respond?

 

Do you give in to your own impulse to act on your emotions? Or can you model emotional self-regulation and impulse control in that moment?  

 

The main message here is that it's important to lead with your actions above all else.

 

If you're trying to teach your child how to inhibit their impulses, then they absolutely need you to model how you inhibit your impulses.

 

Practice this principle consistently over time and you will make the contrast between your child's behavior and your behavior extremely clear. 

 

How will you apply this principle today?
