I enjoy it when you take on a topic like this. I work in a helping profession and also have a preschooler. The phrase about asking them to join me in the calm instead of me joining in the chaos is posted above my desk (not in a location clients have access to) and I try to remember it at home. On more than one occasion I have pretended my child was a client. Not something I do a lot, since parenting is by definition not about providing services, but I do keep it as an option in those highly charged moments because I don't want to let my own frustration exacerabate his behaviors. Looking forward to part 3!

I feel like I'm still "coming down from" the years where tantrums were frequent at my house, and my youngest is also 9. Thanks for being so deliberate and specific.

This is soooo important. I work in a residential facility with teenagers who are mostly 4-years-old emotionally. It's so hard to deal with this in the teenage years.

This is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful series. Thank you so much!
