Emotional Overload: 3 Steps To Fewer Tantrums, Greater Connections & More Cooperation
How ToReduce Tantrums, Form Lasting Connections,And IncreaseCooperationIn Your Home
Hey, my name is Rachel, and I have 5 kids 7 years old and under.Though some days threaten to overtake my sanity and there are constant demands on me as a mother, I've figured out how to supportmy children emotionally while still expecting obedience.
It can be drainingday after day when your little ones are constantly melting down, pitchingfits, orrefusing to dowhat you ask.
We want our childrento feel lovedand understood, but we alsoneed them to listen to usso they don't end upburnt by the ovenor unattended in abusy parking lot!
The truth is thatkids' emotionsareLarge and In Chargeand we cannot make them go away. There is no trick to get your kids to never cry or whine or fuss.
That would simplynot be human...
No amount of connection or cuddling will mean your children don't get angry, frustrated, or upset.
This is why how we handle our kids' emotions is so important!
And honestly, it'sso much easierthan you think.
There'sno time limit or formulato help your children calm down, it's simplyknowing what your child needsfrom you.
"You provide us mothers, even if we have worldly knowledge, with practical LOVING advice and a judgment free environment to grow and learn together."
Over the years I've created a ton of resources forbusy moms looking for solutions. They all rest on the blog and in my shop and sell month after month to moms all over the world.
But I realized I didn't have one comprehensive resource to help momnavigate their kids' EMOTIONS.
The tantrums, the whining, the crying, the resistance, theDRAMA!
To fill that gap, I've created a class called Emotional Overload.
Emotional Overloadwas created to help you do thefollowing:
Understandwhy your children seem toOverreactor haveExaggerated Emotionsthat are hard to calm.
Learnwhat type of responseyour children need from you when they are struggling(hint: you don't have to be an emotionless robot)
Grasp theimportance of connectionboth you and your child needswithout falling preyto the "Connection Is Everything" trap that leaves you with disobedient and self-directed kids.
"What do I do when my daughter doesn’t respect the word ‘no’and thinks she’s the boss of the household?"
We all want our kidsto feel loved.
We want our kidsto feel valued and respected.
We also want to them to not lose it at the drop of a hat and -maybe just maybe-to actually do what we ask them to do.
This is whereEmotional Overloadcomes in.
This classwill teach you whychildren have such strong emotions (and why you do too!)and how to help them feel loved and understoodwithout feeling like you are becoming a doormat!
"When are tantrumsdisobedienceand when are they justthe overflow of emotions?Do I evergive in to any request in the midst of a tantrum?"
If emotions are high at your house and you're always bouncing back and forth between being too harsh then feeling guilty then being too lenient... and continuing the cycle...
Emotional Overloadwill help you do the following:
Learn the concept of theEmotional Basementand how it applies to your child (and the whole family)

Bereleasedfrom the idea that you are supposed to make sure your children are alwayshappy
And As A BONUS...
