Many kids react emotionally to unfriendly situations with classmates and friends and conflict with siblings and parents. Reacting negatively to sticky situations often makes the situation worse. This workshop will teach kids how to recognize when they are in a sticky situation & give them and parents tools to calm their bodies and see options to work through or shut down situations.
Kids will learn options of how to respond to sibling conflict, typical playground situations, so they have the words and strategies in their toolbox. Kids need social skill tools to manage emotions & respond appropriately to social & family situations. Emotional regulation is our ability to manage our emotions in how we respond to situations. It is one of the most important predictors of success. If we do not have the tools in our tool box our emotional response may cause us to overreact in a negative way that impacts our self-esteem & enflames a situation. Parents will learn the same tools and strategies the kids are learning and how they can support their kids in learning and using these skills. All kids and parents can benefit from learning about new ways to manage situations in a child’s social and family world.
