When children are young their emotions come in peaks and valleys.
Sometimes they’re super excited, sometimes they’re sad, and sometimes they lose control and express themselves by throwing a temper tantrum.
These outbursts of emotions are common for parents and kids of all walks of life and can be leveraged by parents who want to teach impulse control, improved behavior, and better mindfulness.
That’s why Matt’s swirly world was written to help parents understand the “why” behind a tantrum as well as what’s going on inside their child’s brain when they’re acting out, feeling scared, or reacting to stressful situations.
An adorable journey featuring a mother and her young son, this book is a great reminder about how all emotions are accepted and that proper behaviors can be learned by kids and taught by moms and dads. In fact, your love is the perfect space where emotions can be processed, expressed, and shared together.
In this book parents will learn how mindfulness helps kid’s create better coping skills, but also a variety of other useful tools, including:
– How love can be used to process emotions and support positive behaviors
– Why feelings of anger and frustration come and go and are non-threatening
– How a calm voice and demeanor can soothe a child and minimize meltdowns
– Providing children relief from stress, anxiety, or big feelings and emotions
– How children often mimic the behaviors of their mothers and fathers
– Moving forward and adapting to behavioral changes in the future
This is an opportunity to learn and grow as a parent while teaching your child valuable mindfulness and self-control skills they can use long into adulthood. And it should be the first book you read on tantrums, emotions, and how to inspire positive behaviors each and every day.
When you need help better understanding why your child feels or acts they way they do in times of crisis, or you just want to connect with them on a deeper level, learn more about temper tantrums and emotional control with Matt’s swirly world – Helping Parents Understand Tantrums to Create Mindful Kids.
Well written for the toddler/preschool age group, and helps to teach how to recognize big emotions that come on quickly. My little ones enjoyed it! – Emily380
I really liked this book. My son is dealing with a lot of big emotions recently. I think this book helped him understand he can talk about what’s bothering him and just throw a fit or keep it bottled inside. Thank you so much! – Stepheniec
