I am a mother of a 12-year-old preteen who has been experiencing frequent mood swings and emotional outbursts lately. My daughter is usually a well-behaved child but it's becoming difficult to communicate with her when she's upset. I'm not sure what's causing this sudden behavioral change and I'm worried about her well-being.
I would appreciate any advice on how to handle these mood swings and emotional outbursts effectively. What are some proven techniques to help calm down a preteen during a meltdown? What are some ways to promote healthy communication and strengthen the bond between parents and children during turbulent times?
Thank you in advance for your help!
