Holding space for your kids’ big feelings is only draining because our culture gives us some untrue messages about feelings and doesn’t give us the emotional skills we need.

If you’d like to be able to hold space for your kids’ big feelings without feeling drained, there are four areas to focus on:

– Recognising what our child’s feelings are really telling us

– Building the skills to help kids calm down from overwhelm

– Becoming skilled at meeting our kids’ underlying needs without sacrificing our own

– Dealing with any baggage we have about big feelings
