Validating emotion regulation

Maternal emotion coaching partially mediated the relation between family risk and child emotion regulation, in particular child emotional lability.

The findings support further research into the possibilities of training mothers in high risk families in emotion coaching skills in order to foster their children's emotional development.

Although parental emotion coaching has been identified as a potentially important factor for children's emotional development, research into this topic is scant.

The present study examined whether maternal emotion coaching can play a mediational role between family risk (i.e.

However, if he hits his friend, his actions are inappropriate, and they’ll have consequences. And, of course, it’s important to teach your kids how to appropriately express their anger and other emotions. Hall and Cook give the example of a 9-year-old daughter who didn’t eat much dinner because she wanted to play with her friends.Validation is not the same as trying to help your child fix their emotions or problems. “It just means that you understand what your child feels is real to her.”It also doesn’t mean letting your child do whatever they want – a common misconception the authors often hear.For instance, you validate your child’s feeling of not wanting to go to school but you communicate that the action of missing school isn’t an option.“Don’t validate what is not valid.KW - Emotion coaching KW - Emotion regulation KW - Emotion socialization KW - Family stress KW - High-risk families UR - Everyone experiences emotions—whether enjoyable or painful, our emotions make us human.The therapist takes the client’s responses seriously and does not discount or trivialize them. The authors define validation as “the recognition and acceptance that your child has feelings and thoughts that are true and real to him regardless of logic or whether it makes sense to anyone else.”Validating a child means letting them share their thoughts and feelings without judging, criticizing, ridiculing or abandoning them. You convey that you love and accept them no matter what they’re feeling or thinking.In fact, it’s one of the most important things you can do for your child, according to authors Karyn D.

And it’s an effective way to help your child name his or her feelings and know that having these feelings is perfectly OK.***Check out Karyn Hall’s popular Psych Central blog The Emotionally Sensitive Person, where she explores emotional regulation, DBT, mood management and more.
