    <div>-Build trusting relationships by making a child feel seen AND heard.

    -I want to help them learn different strategies for managing their emotions. Acknowledge that their feelings are valid but help show them ways to identify what they’re feeling and how they can communicate/ cope with those feelings.

    -Lead by example and not just by words!

    -Instead of telling them they are doing something wrong, help them recognize the cause and effect of our actions and introduce alternative ways to express what they want/ need.
