As our children develop, so they are learning about their own emotions during this stage. It can really help for a parent to see their role in supporting their children make meaning of these emotions, instead of blaming and accusing their children for having them.

A good example of changing your wording can be seen below:

Instead of saying "You are a bad boy." or "You are wrong."

Label the behavior instead of the person: "That is the wrong behaviour'.

But to make it really powerful, understand that an even better way to say this is to label it as "INAPPROPRIATE" behaviour, instead of bad or wrong.
