Many struggle to cope with stress, anxiety and transitions. Children with low thresholds for frustration, tendencies toward negativism, or difficulties tolerating losing or getting their way, demonstrate this stress with an extreme emotional reaction (meltdown) or a closed emotional reaction (shutdown). The Emotional Regulation program helps children learn to recognize their feelings before being taken over by them. Program is designed to teach children: How to cognitively manage emotions by realizing when they may be vulnerable to a stressful situation. Relaxation skills in order to improve the ability to calm themselves in order to make better choices. Problem-solving skills
