I love this blog by Dr. Tina Payne Bryson (co-author of The Whole Brain Child, my favorite parenting book).  Dr. Bryson’s book was mentioned in a previous blog post.

If you have children or adolescents in your life, I highly encourage you to view this 14 minute video on emotional responsiveness.  It discusses the significance of this response in brain development, emotion/behavior management, and also gives examples of being emotionally responsive with your child or teen.  You won’t regret checking it out. If you want help in perfecting these skills, I hope you will reach out to me.  I would love to be your coach!
