Member question:

My almost 11 year old has lots of big feelings around this time. We struggle with letting him have these big feelings and being respectful. How do we let/teach him to get out the yuck in healthier ways? How do we set a boundary do not use very nasty hurtful language when I know he rarely remembers it or means it?

I commend you for thinking about this in that way… Yes, we want kids to release their feelings but they MUST do it in healthy ways! Here’s a lesson on this topic… Hopefully it will get you started. Let me know if you have any questions.
