I remember a very stressful time when my daughter was younger and we were considering making a cross-country move. Not only was it stressful for her dad and I, but she was experiencing the SAME intense and uncomfortable emotions we were feeling.
It was not a FUN time. I couldn't even leave her alone with her friends because she was having trouble controlling her body and hurting other kids.
Can you say not-a-proud-mama-moment!
But as all stages do - it eventually passed, but not without some much needed attention and support from me (and her dad).

In this new episode of TEACHable Moments, I share some tips for regulating the little people!
