Webinar: Supporting the Child’s Emotions

Emotions require Listening, Understanding & Love

How can you as a childminder support and encourage a child as they work through their feelings and emotions?

A child needs an environment where they can feel safe to express their feelings and learn how to regulate their behaviour. When safety is created for the child to express and respond to emotions, real progress can happen and this will influence how the child will cope with their emotions in the future.

Validating the child’s feelings will ensure they feel secure and supported as they work through these emotions. Suppressing emotions can lead to negative outcomes for the child.

Childminding Ireland have asked Parenting and Relationship Mentor, Fran Grennan to host another webinar to help childminders to create an environment where it is safe for the child to express and receive emotions. Fran’s webinar will cover:

Letting the child know that it’s ok to feel upset, sad, etc.

Encouraging the child to express where he feels the emotion in his body
