Controlling the Volcano Within
The morning concentrated on the adult assisting the child in managing their overwhelming emotions.
The particular age of children we discussed for tools and situations were 0-6 years old. The tool that I feel was the strongest was the use of visual facial expressions and asking the child to point to the one that closest resembled how they were feeling. I tried it out later that day when Ava was having a melt-down from being tired and hungry. It worked to calm her down and she pointed to the sad face. I was so proud of her.
