Dear Dr. Donna, How can I get my daughter to talk about her emotions?
It is always a challenge when we know our children are experiencing big emotions and they don’t have the knowledge or tools to appropriately express them or are reluctant to talk to us about how they are feeling. How do we help them to know they can come to us and talk to us about how they are feeling? It starts with us!
Given children learn by imitation and observation, start by being their beacon, their role model. for how best to handle emotions and difficult situations.
