Positive Parents: 5 Healthy Responses to Children's Emotions

Positive Parents: 5 Healthy Responses to Children's Emotions | Creating Environments to Nuture Social and Emotional Skills in Early Childhood | Scoop.it

There was an article released in September 2011 outlining 5 healthy responses to a child's natural emotions. The article is fantastic and can be viewed in full here. I would just like to elaborate on the 5 healthy responses mentioned in the article, which are:

Recognize the emotion. Increase intimacy with emotion.Listen for and validate emotion.Label emotion.Set limits with emotion.

How do you put this into practice?

Early Childhood Brain Insights: BRAIN INSIGHTS TO SHARE: Brains Need Sleep! | Creating Environments to Nuture Social and Emotional Skills in Early Childhood | Scoop.it

Sleep enhances cognitive functioning and influences moods. Having enough sleep contributes to a more positive mood. When the brain lacks the sleep it needs, brain systems become out of balance. Young (and adult) brains become more easily agitated when sleep deprived.

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, March 8, 2013 12:27 PM

"Instead of drill and kill, kids need help developing the “soft skills” of success — persevering even when tasks are challenging, being able to focus, finding creative ways to solve problems, getting along with others, dealing with anger and frustration. These are equally important in preparing kids for the rigors of kindergarten, which now looks nothing like it did a generation ago."

"How can reading to my child help with development?

 

Studies have shown that in most cases, the highest level high school and college students were read to as young children. This is due to the fact that reading aloud helps children develop language and vocabulary before they start school."

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, February 6, 2013 9:12 AM

The brain is experience dependent. That means, a child must be exposed to language to be able to make the brain connections for using language. The brain develops most language skills from birth to the age of three. When children are talked to frequently during these early years, the result is a better vocabulary and a higher level of language and reading ability overall.
