Helping Children Manage Frustration
How to help children through life’s inevitable challenges
Wednesday, December 6 at 1:00 PM PST
Free live webinar
limited to 100 guests!
“My son explodes with anger at the drop of a hat!”
While we instinctively want our kids to be happy, it is actually not in a child’s best interest to fix all their problems and try to talk them out of their upsets. Giving in to every demand results in a child who cannot handle things when they don’t go their way. And trying to convince an angry child not to be upset just makes things worse.
I teach parents how to help their children move through frustration by treating it as a loss, borrowing Kubler Ross’ stages of Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Disappointment, and Acceptance.
“No matter how hard I try to explain why my daughter can’t have what she wants, she hits and kicks when she doesn’t get her way.”
When we help children move through their sadness when they can’t have what they long for, they become able to adapt to life’s inevitable ups and downs.
If we want to raise children with resilience, we must help them develop the capacity to deal with frustration and disappointment.
Learning how to parent in a way that helps children become adaptable is an essential element of my approach to raising strong, confident, compassionate children.

My strategies benefit parents of children of all ages–toddlers through teens.
