Children who “act impulsively” may actually be responding to feeling scattered or reacting to a chaotic environment. This means in order to help them “calm down”, we need to start by considering our own actions and responses.
How focused are you? Are you able to calm your own nerves so you guide your child to calm theirs?
Remember, your child needs practice (with you leading them) to get, shift, and even keep their attention. Your child needs your help to stop, think, and then act. Shouting to a child to “calm down” or giving idle threats will have little to no effect.
Impulsive Ian is one of six video tutorials designed for parents.
Each video in the series helps you gain a better understanding of how to “teach before the peak”, “calm the storm of emotions”, and “stay on the blue train of regulation.”
The video tutorials also help with the home-school-connection. Meaning, early educators, child-care providers, and other loving adults can learn along with you. This is important, because we all know, when the same techniques are used with consistency, children feel safe and are able to thrive.
