WANT A SELF-REFLECTION TECHNIQUE to help your child soothe her out-of-control feelings? Below you'll find a Parenting Gift to help her use whenever she needs it.

When kids explode with anger, they often regret their outbursts. If your student is having trouble digging out from under depression, this tool can help. Fear, that anxious feeling that can invade your youngster's heart and prevent her from trying, can be changed with this stress-relief strategy.

Children own powerful minds and rich imaginations. (You do too. That's why you can use this system too.) Just as thoughts can increase difficult feelings, thoughts can reduce them too.

Preparing Your Child to Meditate

1. Be sure your child is in a good mood. A bad mood won't work because your child is still feeling negative.

 

2. Talk privately to show you respect your youngster. Make sure the surroundings are quiet and peaceful.

 

3. Discuss out-of-control feelings and how everyone experiences them. Use questions to learn her thoughts rather than lecturing.

 

4. Ask, “What feeling is hard for you to control?” Help her talk about her emotions by listening well.

 

5. Ask, “Are you willing to use your imagination to control it?”

Gift: The Emotion Meter - Your Parent and Child Activity

The Emotion Meter Regulates Feelings
Make Your Own Emotion Meter

If you've heard, "My child cannot control his emotions," don't believe it. Yes, it's more difficult for some children than others. But most children can learn.

No, it's not because you yell, put-down, or shame him. No parent feels good doing those things.

Our gift today gives your student a powerful tool for controlling his angry outbursts, sad, guilty, or anxious feelings. He will learn how to draw his own emotion meter with faces to match. You then can say the words to help him use it effectively.

The video below your gift will show you what to say.

Once your child learns this special technique for mastering feelings, he can choose whether to use it or not. If he does, he will learn the art of self-regulation which is the ability to say "No" to out-of-control emotions. It can also help him turn his difficult feelings into positive emotions.

To pick up this free gift, insert the word, METER at Subscriber Gifts and download yours today.

I suggest you keep a parenting binder and download this gift to save and use whenever you need it.
