Institute of Child Psychology

Children's Mental Health Conference 2019 April 26th - 28th, 2019

“Words to Calm a Child” provides key phrases parents and caregivers can utilize to promote emotion regulation and connection with a child struggling with anxiety, anger, or sadness. We also provide a quick formula to effectively set limits with children, and recommend some phrases to repair the relationship if you lose your cool in the heat of the moment.

It’s our way of saying thank-you to all of the wonderful parents, teachers and professionals who care deeply about children’s mental health.
