Walking parents through the concept of emotional competency, this practical manual argues that it begins by teaching children to identify and acknowledge their feelings.

The straightforward advice provided will counsel parents on how to survive their children’s emotional meltdowns and help them think through how to prevent future problems. Just as importantly, it teaches caregivers how to remain calm themselves so that they can recognize and manage both the causes and results of children’s frustration.
