Teaching Our Kids AND Ourselves What To Do With Negative Emotions

Hi friend! Do your kids ever get angry or throw tantrums? Do YOU ever get triggered by their tantrums and lose it? 

I do. We all do.

In this episode you’ll get to hear from the amazing Renee Jain of GoZen as we discuss how to “handle” emotions in both our children AND in ourselves. 

  • [05:37] What is GoZen in a nutshell?
  • [09:20] We have to make peace with the idea that stress and difficulties are a part of our humanity.
  • [09:42] Feelings aren’t good or bad. They’re neutral.
  • [11:24] Create a character (a name) for each emotion (such as “Fury” for anger).
  • [14:30] Emotions come and go. They’re not permanent.
  • [14:44] We need to have a relationship with the [seemingly negative] emotion and see the upsides.
  • [19:23] Anger/fury usually pops up for protection, or when boundaries have been crossed.
  • [22:10] Don’t try to teach your children things “in the moment.” 
  • [22:48] We need to model what it looks like and stop trying to control our children’s emotions. 
  • [27:28] In those moments, try putting on your detective hat.
  • [31:24] Play is so important, even when they’re throwing angry tantrums.
  • [32:51] Progress should be measured in years, not days. 
  • [34:44] Practice or role play (outside of the moment) to teach them how they can respond differently when they’re in the moment. 
  • [41:21] It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
  • [44:52] We can’t be afraid of feelings and try to always suppress and control them. 
  • [48:26] Get a stuffed animal for each of the 4 main emotions and use them for role play.

The work never really ends, but if we’ll remember that progress is measured in years and not days, that it’s a marathon and not a sprint, and implement some of the tips that Renee mentions, we’ll start to see some lasting change in ourselves and in our children.

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Parent In Love is a 6-month deep-dive online program that will transform your marriage from the inside out. ⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
