How To Teach Your Kids To Handle Disappointment

How To Teach Your Kids To Handle Disappointment

When things don’t go the way we plan or hope, powerful feelings show up. Disappointment is common, and the smaller you are, the bigger it feels. How do we help our children learn to manage this emotion as they mature? In this episode, we talk about intercepting the most challenging (and annoying) disappointment reactions, like blaming, whining and sulking, and what to model instead.


Lynn's fourth book focuses on adults and their anxiety.
