Parenting a Child who has Intense Emotions

Posted on Oct 23, 2013 in Books, Parenting

Maybe this feels like you? But are you parenting effectively or are your child’s intense emotions pulling you to react emotionally or shut down? This book, by Harvey and Penzo, teaches you effective ways to help your child de-escalate (or take it down a notch) and learn how to express these emotions in a more productive manner.  Thinking and responding ‘wisely’ as a parent empowers you to have more control of yourself and aid your child in knowing how and being able to behave in a calmer and more acceptable manner. This can bring relief to families and increase positive connections. The authors start with the assumption that you are all doing the best you can AND you can do better!
