I'm a parent of a 6-year-old child who has been struggling with emotional regulation lately. My child seems to be having a hard time controlling their emotions during certain situations, such as when they don't get their way or when they're feeling frustrated. I've noticed that my child will start crying, yelling or even throw tantrums when feeling overwhelmed, making it difficult for me to handle the situation.
As a parent, I want to teach my child how to manage their emotions appropriately, but I'm not sure how to discipline them in such situations. I want to be able to help my child navigate through their negative emotions, but I also want to set boundaries and rules for their behavior.
What are some effective ways to discipline a child who is struggling with emotional regulation? How can I help my child learn to manage their emotions while also maintaining discipline and respect?
Any advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
