Fellow Parents,

Maybe your child still tends to pitch a full on fit when they’re upset, or maybe you’ve watched your child stomp away pouting. Either way we’ve all seen our children exhibit a LACK of self-control. We all know self-control is an important characteristic in life. You may not have known, but self-control is more important than intelligence when it comes to academic success.

So, we know self-control is vastly important, and we’re probably all on the same boat in stating we WANT our children to show better self-control. The question is, HOW do we teach them that? Check out this month’s video on how to tame your child’s emotional meltdowns.

We’ll be in touch later this month with more ways to teach emotional self-control.

Your partner,
