How To Effectively Handle Kids’ Yuck / Big Emotions


 1. Ahead of time, recognize your child’s Yuck signs. 

2. When you notice these signs (that your child is on the Yuck curve), don’t say much. Show them, through your energy, that you have their back and that you can handle their emotions.

3. Model your own mature, respectful Yuck release rather than suggesting one to them. 

4. Once their signs of Yuck are gone, then you can re-engage with them.
