This can temporarily increase your stress at home. What your child needs in the midst of their button-pushing behavior is an anchor, not an adversary!

Imagine this--> Your child is like a boat tossed about on the waves of big feelings. The urge is to jump in the boat with them to try to help, especially when a storm is raging!

This is Parent-Centric thinking!
