Young children react strongly and tend to have “meltdowns” – sometimes it’s predictable but other times, it’s just not!  This series will help you understand why your child so often displays intense emotions and the behaviors that go along with them. There are lots of options for how to respond in helpful ways during these difficult times with your young child.  This library of classes offers parents solutions for how to:

  • Respond effectively when big feelings overwhelm your young child 
  • Apply strategies that help prevent episodes of overwhelm 
  • Support  your young child to gradually manage feelings of disappointment and frustration.
