Tips for calming emotions & avoiding power struggles

Flipping Your Lid

When your child’s emotions are running high their rational brain is literally turned off and their irrational or reptilian brain is firing (Dr. Dan Siegel calls this “flipping your lid.”) Until they (and you) are calm, they won’t be able to  reason, listen, or have a rational conversation with you.


This free resource, created by Early Years Lead, Julietta Skoog, shares insights on how to calm big emotions, teach emotional regulation skills, and avoid power struggles.
