Learn the most important parenting skill in the history of the universe! Emotion coaching is the key to raising happy, healthy, resilient and well-adjusted children. This class will teach you:
- What to do when children have emotional outbursts. Studies show that kids who are emotion coached experience fewer negative emotions and recover more quickly when they are upset.
- Why bribes, threats and rewards tend to backfire in the long-run. These external motivators undermine kids’ creativity and problem solving skills.
- How to tap into kids’ self-motivation, even for household chores. Self-motivated kids are more successful, perceive themselves to be more competent, and are less anxiety prone.
Happy people know how to cope with painful situations and emotions, and they know how to bounce back from them. While the value of love, dependability and sensitivity is not to be underestimated, we need to teach kids to cope with negative emotions such as anger, anxiety and fear. This class will help you teach children the skills they need to become better at understanding their many and changing feelings.
This online class (a Homestudy sampler) includes five video classes, online discussion groups, weekly practices, and a live coaching call and Q&A with Dr. Christine Carter on Tuesday, April 30.
