Understanding Toddler Emotions
As parents of toddlers well know, a toddler's emotional life is vivid. It is the source of great joy! And it is also often the source of the challenging behaviors we associate with this stage of life. Learn about what drives a toddler's feelings from a developmental perspective. What is behind the tantrums? The indecision? The testing? And how do we support toddlers as they learn to understand and express their emotions? Let's embrace the intensity of these years and find our own voices as guides for our children.

Topics will include:
-understanding the toddler mind
-tantrums: why they happen and what to do
-testing: holding limits and boundaries with respect
-sharing (and not sharing)
-how to acknowledge feelings
