Every parent has experienced a child's tantrums and meltdowns. These often come at inconvenient times and places, and they remind us that young children are still learning how to understand and regulate their emotions. Just like adults, kids experience a full range of "big feelings,” including anger, fear, happiness, sadness, excitement and frustration. They need our guidance as they develop strategies for calming down, controlling impulses and focusing.

Emotions influence behavior. Part of growing up is learning how to manage our emotions and exercise self-control so that we can treat ourselves and others with respect. Sometimes that means resisting what we want to do in the moment (such as throw something when we are mad) to make a more thoughtful choice. When kids experience stressful and emotional situations, self-regulation strategies can help them calm down and make good decisions.Learn More
