3. Why punishing your kids for their big emotions is not helpful and what to do instead

Do you struggle with your kids big feelings that are so overwhelming? Do you normally force them to shut it down and punish them for the emotion? I've done that. In this podcast I talk about how that is actually not helpful, it only makes them feel not seen and does not teach them any skill how to respond better next time. Join me while I explain why punishing for the big emotion will actually grow you apart from your child and what you can do as a parent instead.
