Parenting during the COVID era has presented all of us with new and unexpected challenges.  Are your kids having a hard time managing their big feelings? Is it difficult to get them to listen and follow directions? The good news is that we can teach our kids specific tools to help them calm down and self-regulate.  By building their emotional awareness, ability to communicate, and their overall emotional intelligence (EQ), we can reduce tantrums and manage power struggles.  Research shows that kids with high EQ earn better grades, stay in school longer and make healthier choices overall.  Practical hands on tips and strategies will be reviewed and practiced
