    These are great! Do you have other phrases geared more toward the pre-teen set? Elmo brushing his teeth first is more likely to get eye-rolls in our house ?

    Hi,just read a couple of your suggestions on what to say 2 an angry child, also the highly sensitive child. I found both to be so positive compared to when I was raising my 2.I really wish this positive area of expertise existed then. My son is soon to b 33, my daughter 29. She has 3 little ones a 5yr, 3yr, and a 14mo old. She definitely tries her best w patience but @ those ages,involving all of them in their own activities as well as some together it can get exhaustive. I shared ur article on What to say to an angry child. I’m hoping it will help her as well to see situations differently. Ty very much.

    Oh, these are wonderful!

    I knew that you are supposed to stay calm, understand that they often are scared by their emotions themselves and rather look for a solution together. And when I manage to do it, my son (3,5 yo) responds well and calms down faster. But in some cases, I simply didn’t know how to do it better.

    This is basically a system to fall back on when you (the parent) are angry and can’t think straight.

    I think I need to read this a couple of more times 🙂

    Thank you so much, Renee. Pinning it and can’t wait to spread the word.
