Episode 28: Emotion Coaching – Hacks To Handle All These Emotions Flooding Those We Love
In our current climate of converging crises we often find ourselves interacting with friends, family and kids who are flooded with emotional responses. In this season, we consider helpful ways to respond in these interactions and how to help our kids–and others–make sense of what they are feeling and how to receive care.
*Discussion Questions: *
- What have you noticed about how you are relating to yourself, God or others in this season that feels new or different? What have you noticed about how your kids or loved ones are relating differently?
- How does it feel to have your goal be to help those people “feel felt?” Is that a change in the way you’ve been responding?
- When we talk about coaching kids’ emotions we asked how you do with your own emotions. How are you at naming and regulating your emotions? Is there one emotion that you find especially challenging?
