Emotion Coaching: The Heart of Parenting explores how parents can engage with the children and teens in their lives in those moments when their emotions are running high, whether they are feeling sad, angry, or scared. It introduces participants to Emotion Coaching, a parenting style that has been proven to have a positive and long-lasting impact on children and parent/child relationships. Emotion Coaching involves a 5-step process that is research-based, easy to learn, and effective for use with children and adolescents of all ages. This process can be applied to many of the behavioural challenges that parents encounter with their children and can help build lifelong coping skills. Parents can start Emotion Coaching with children at any age. It’s never too late!
