SHOW NOTES

If you have young children, you know that roller coasters of emotion are just a part of the deal. There’s ups and downs, sometimes all within a five minute window. Knowing how to teach your kids what each emotion feels like and how to express that emotion in a healthy way can seem like an impossible task That’s why Dr. Meg has enlisted experts Dr. Joshua Straub and his wife Christi to talk about helping kids identify and express their feelings. They have a new kids book out called What Am I Feeling? that is about Sam and his friends understanding what they are feeling and what to do when those feelings take control. Also in this episode, Dr. Meg gives you her points to ponder that you can start using right away! If you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer in an upcoming episode, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.comand listen to future episodes to see if your question is featured!
