Avoiding the accommodation trap with anxious children.
Tuning in to emotions promotes self-esteem and healing.
Naming painful emotions activates the healing.
Creating safety invites openness and honesty.
Reining in defensiveness fosters good communication.
Helping them see things through the eyes of others.
Letting emotions settle so that reason can arrive.

Talking to Kids You Love is written and created by Aaron Cooper, Ph.D., in collaboration with Marina Eovaldi, Ph.D., and Benjamin Rosen, Ph.D. The project is made possible by a generous grant from The Golub Family Foundation.
