Holding Space for Kids’ Big Feelings

Many of us have heard that we should “hold space” for our kids’ big feelings. Of course, helping them label their feelings and using co-regulation (rather than expecting them to self-soothe) support their emotional intelligence. What should we do in the moment, though, when we’re tempted to jump in and solve their problem, distract them from it, or move them through it before they might be ready? Further, what can we do in the rare moments where we need to temporarily delay the expression of big feelings? These tips can help.

Thought to ponder: ALL feelings are valid. Some may “feel” positive or negative, but all emotions serve a healthy purpose.
