'Name it to tame it' parenting strategy

First 5 Forever Cloud White

When we’re in overwhelming times in our lives and dealing with a lot of unpredictability, it’s good to remember our children face the same things. Tina Payne Bryson explains that it’s important for parents to be talking with their children and encouraging them to share their feelings. The ‘Name it to tame it’ strategy is a useful way to break down the situation and helps us become aware of our feelings, allowing us to be more flexible, adaptive, coherent, energized, and stable.
