Self Regulation

So often we hold children to a higher standard of self regulation than many of us are capable of ourselves! 

There are times when we, as adults, become over tired and over stressed and suddenly hit our threshold of all we can take with demands on us and we act out towards a spouse or family member with unkind words or we may throw a little toddler tantrum ourselves! I know it happens cause I have seen it out and about in stores and service based businesses ;) 

Peopling is HARD and what children need in those moments what ANYONE needs where they cannot regulate themselves is for us to HELP them through co-regulation showing empathy and offering support vs tossing more stress into their spiral. 

Mental health in the early years MATTERS!
