  • Responding to Strong Emotions

    In AATH on page 107, Barbara and Lysa write: "It is critical to respond to children's strong emotions, even when they act out with negative behavior or tantrums". How do you do it?

    For me, when she is experiencing strong emotions I am trying to figure out what is behind those emotions, watching her carefully to make sure that she or anyone else is not going to be physically hurt by her emotions, and let her cool down before attempting any discussion with her. This has helped tremendously and helped me keep my head level as well.
