Instead of Go to Your Room

When your child reaches their tipping point or "lid is flipped," their reasoning and rational thinking tends to shut down. Instead of sending them away, try these three approaches to support their emotion regulation skills:
1. Calming breathing techniques
2. Exercise
3. Play using playdough, jump rope or make music
Check out this handout for additional ideas! You may print it and put it on the fridge or a place that can help remind you of ways to help your child navigate their strong feelings.
