"When children have a hard time calming down, parents are often hesitant about roughhousing. They are afraid that it will escalate, and that children won't be able to settle down. But these are children who need it most. You can't learn to settle down if you never get revved up. children with lots of energy who never get to roughhouse end up going wild when they do get a chance, because they don't have any practice with calming down. If you start to wrestle regularly, both parent and child will learn to do a better job of winding down."
Do you find this to be true with your child?
