How to teach kids to manage emotions and tolerate frustrations with Kate Lund
Release date: January, 2023
The science is clear: Kids need to be able to regulate their emotions and overcome adversity and frustration to be successful in a classroom, in relationships, and in life. Social and emotional skills do not detract from learning other subjects. Rather, these skills allow all learning to occur. My guest this episode, Kate Lund, knows this. As she bravely describes in her book, Bounce: Help Your Child Build Resilience and Thrive in School, Sports and Life, Kate's own early childhood experiences taught her the importance of managing emotions and of resilience. She brings these insights to her work as a clinical psychologist and a peak performance coach, and she is sharing them here for you. More information about Kate and her work can be found below.
