Helping Kids Cope with Stress
Kids naturally experience stress. Yet, coping with stress is a learned behavior. Based on his research, John Gottman, psychologist and author, refers to parents as emotion coaches, whose job is to help their children better understand and regulate their emotions. Because good coaches know and practice what they teach, attendees and I will talk about improving our own coping strategies, so we can better teach those strategies to our kids.
