One of the behaviors that we often see in children with big feelings is that they react quickly and strongly, usually in a way that seems disproportionate to the situation. Trying to convince them not to get so upset, or using logic to explain why they shouldn’t be so reactive…only makes the situation worse. In this episode, you’ll learn why it makes sense that children with big feelings act so “dramatic” and how you can help them in the short run and foster more resilience in the long run.

    Episode 203: Why Don’t Punishments Work With My Big Emotions Child?

    Episode 202: When Children Act Self-Centered

    12:11

    It’s so easy to get frustrated or angry with (or even worried about!) children who act self-centered -- children who get mad when you don’t give them what they want or insist that things must go the way they say. Unfortunately, explaining to children that they’re being selfish and why they need to stop doesn’t tend to change their behavior. In this episode, you’ll learn why children, especially those with big emotions, tend to focus on themselves so much. You’ll learn how to respond to this issue in an effective, but perhaps non-intuitive, way.

    15:53

    Episode 107: Stop “Future Thinking” To Reduce Worry and Respond More Effectively

    13:10

    When we’re deciding how to respond to kids’ behavior, we’re often motivated by preventing bad things from happening in the future. We want to do everything we can to make sure they turn out to be responsible and respectful, and that they have success and happiness later in life. But often, when we’re focusing on the future, we aren’t able to give them what they need to act and feel better in the future. In this episode, you’ll learn why “future thinking” creates more worry and doesn’t have the positive impact you’d think. You’ll also learn tips to help you prevent this type of thinking so that you can give your kids what they actually need to be successful.  See Rachel's free video series created for parents of children with big emotions Follow Rachel in Instagram Join Rachel’s Facebook group Sign up for Rachel’s free weekly tips by email

    12:45

    Often we WANT to connect with our children -- to understand how they’re feeling or what motivated a certain behavior -- but they don’t tell us. When we ask them questions, they may say “I don’t know,” or shrug, or they just don’t answer… and we leave conversations feeling disappointed and helpless. In this episode, you’ll learn 3 reasons children tend not to open up to us and what steps you can take to address each of those reasons.  Follow Rachel on Instagram: https://instagram.com/rachelbaileyparenting Join Rachel’s Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RachelBailey/ Sign up for Rachel’s free weekly tips by email: https://rachel-bailey.com/weekly-tips/ Check out Rachel Bailey's Parenting Academy:  https://rachel-bailey.com/parenting-academy/
