Review by Library Journal Review

Campbell and Stauble, both early childhood education experts, tackle the delicate topic of emotions. The authors advocate for Collaborative Emotion Processing, which is a way to mindfully build emotional intelligence skills as one encounters challenging times. They want their audience to read the first two parts of the book in order. Part I discusses how what is learned in childhood can affect one's adulthood. That section also identifies common triggers and examines self-regulation as it describes what happens in the human body when one experiences the resulting emotions. Part II guides parents through responding to their children's overwhelming emotions, making meltdowns less frequent, and building bonds while supporting their children. Campbell and Stauble tell readers they can selectively peruse Part III, which tackles specific circumstances and frequently asked questions. The title concludes with guidance on how to effectively use the book's featured tools and deal with the sometimes daunting question of where to begin. Social identity biases are also addressed at length. VERDICT This practical volume encourages parents to look inward for solutions to help their children deal with overwhelming emotions.
