Being an emotion coach for your child will help him learn to recognize, express and regulate his emotions. You’ll be helping his with language development as well. Just think, fewer tantrums because your child will have the words to express his feelings rather than having to act on them.
Emotion coaching promotes the deep connection between you and your child, strengthening your relationship and regular communication. With your guidance, they’ll learn valuable social skills and how to attend to the emotional cues of others. He’ll learn to make new friends and will play well with others.
Emotion coaching helps your child build a “coat of armor” that protects him in times of adversity – he’ll also recover more quickly from negative feelings and experiences. Emotion coaching helps your child learn patience, increases his ability to delay gratification and better manage impulsive behaviors. Children who receive emotion coaching have better concentration at school and master learning tasks easier.
Through emotion coaching your child learns the value of connection, respect and communication in relationships. So as an adult he’ll be able to understand and support the emotions of others. With emotion coaching you help your child become a compassionate parent when his time comes.
