Parents play a substantial role in emotional development in early childhood. Observing parents' actions, reactions, and daily interactions significantly impacts children's emotional health. Participants will gain knowledge about ways to model healthy regulation, increase their children's ability to regulate emotions and behavior, as well as ways to build stronger relationships with their children.
