You play an important role

In an ideal world, every young child would experience the consistent nurturing needed to build a solid social and emotional foundation. It is this support from caring adults like you that helps developing brains not only learn to self-regulate but also be protected from the negative impacts of difficult early experiences.

You have no doubt collected many creative ways to navigate the emotional moments of spilled juice, scary boo-boos and tearful morning drop-offs. Maybe you have a special trick to comfort that new child who is nervous and withdrawn. In these moments, you want to help children feel secure and understood, and maybe model an easy coping strategy as well.

When it comes to supporting a stressed or anxious little one, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Finding a way through that works for all these little personalities and their underlying needs can certainly feel more like an art than a science.
