#58: Feel (Don’t Feed) Your Feelings || Practice Makes Progress

Today’s prompt is:

Feel free to listen in and share your own thoughts ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ.

Okay, friends… Help!!!

Something I’m working on this month is dealing with my kids’ big emotions.

I gave this great 4-step process in today’s episode for feeling your feelings (not feeding them), and it honestly helps! – as an adult.

But we are all struggling with my three-year-old at the moment.

So many big feelings. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I don’t want to teach him he always has to be happy, and shut every other emotion down on a regular basis.

But even my five-year-old can’t handle the whining at this point.

It’s a tricky balance.

How do we validate their big emotions without allowing them to spiral?

Anyone else have the magic secret figured out?

Accepting advice.

Thanks for being here!

  1. My two-year-old is certainly going through a phase of ENORMOUS feelings at the moment. Cue the tears and little kicking legs and objects flying past my head. I just try to sit near him and look at him and calmly say โ€œI know youโ€™re {โ€”โ€”} because {โ€”โ€”}, I understandโ€โ€ฆ and I just wait. The tantrums are getting shorter!
