Emotion Coaching for Young Children: Decrease Conflict and Strengthen Connection


  • Are you sometimes overwhelmed by your child’s feelings? 
  • Does your child have trouble verbalizing their emotions? 
  • Do their displays of emotion seem like misbehavior to you? 

A better relationship with your child starts with emotional intelligence.  Emotional intelligence increases children’s self-worth and cooperation, it improves communication and strengthens the parent-child connection. Family conflict decreases with strong emotional intelligence and it impacts all of your child’s future relationships.
