Stop Your Child's Meltdown Faster with this Parenting Tip

For you to be able to help your child with a technique that works, you need to understand what emotional state your child is in. Each emotional state is different and needs its own set of tools and techniques to help your child work through them. One of the easiest ways to do this is to decide if you have a Pooh bear, an Eeyore, a Piglet, or a Tigger? <<-- Say what?

Yep! You read that correctly? Winnie the Pooh may be the key for you to understand how best to help your child. While Samantha was in group therapy her therapist shared how they compare each child's emotional state, in that moment, to Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the 100 acre woods. In this quick tip video I share what those emotional states are for each character and how it is going to effect your parenting for the better. Watch to find out....


  • When your child is struggling in the moment, observe their behaviors
  • Decide what emotionally state they are in
  • Select a technique for the identified emotional state
  • Reflect on the success of that technique for possible use in the future

Do you have technique for each of your child's emotional characters? Which one is the hardest to work through? Tell me in the comments below.
