Topics Covered in This Episode:
1) What is the root of much of the defiance parents experience with more strong-willed children (i.e. anxiety, frustration, broken relationships, attachment issues)?
2) How can you turn defiance into a bonding opportunity with your child?
3) Can you give examples of how “motion changes emotion” can be used to help calm a child when melting down?
4) Why does using intensity often calm an upset child who is already intense?
