Do you ever feel exhausted and lost trying to figure out what else you could be doing to support you child's emotions?
Every child has different triggers that can make emotions tilt off the tracks, and sometimes, we can call it a roller coaster of emotions that wave through and go through the phases.
But what as parents can we actually do to support this?
I am a Mom too and I know how difficult this is. I have felt exhausted and lost. I have lost sleep at night trying to think of other ways I could have done things differently or things I can try or do next time. Here is a good thing to remember when you are feeling alone and lost in the tornado of what if's -
"Just because your child had an emotional moment and you could't solve or calm the problem or emotion sooner, doesn't mean either of you did anything wrong."
Don't beat yourself up about this. When the time is right, give long hugs and talk about how emotions can sneak up on all of us, no matter what age we are, and then teach or remind them about coping tools they can use for next time.
More food for thought... remind them that emotions don't go away and certain triggers may not go away either. This does't need to feel like doom every time. Focus on how to help prepare the child for the next time this may happen and again, teach coping tools to use to have a better reaction.
There are a few things that we can do that will really help our children maintain more balanced emotions -
We can offer our kiddos support in soooo many ways, we just have to do it.
I also want to add this in, sometimes when we are used to conventional medicine we seem to want to instantly think about "diagnoses". Google searches can cause nightmares... I know you KNOW what I am talking about.
