The Secure Child

Managing emotions, behaviour and the teenage years

We all want our child to feel secure. And your child’s behaviours, along with the emotions that trigger them are a very real part of this, just like they are for all of us. 

Why does my child behave the way they do?

These emotions will be experienced positively through happiness, love and joy. As well as through negative emotions of fear, anger or jealousy.

How do I stop them from getting so upset?

And felt at the right time, and to the right extent, these emotions are a natural, healthy, and necessary part of growing up that we want our secure child to experience with care and guidance.

How do I manage the emotional meltdown in the supermarket?

The trouble comes however, when these emotions are not managed.
