Shame is one of the hardest emotions to cope with....for grown ups- so imagine what it is like to have to known what to do with it as a child.
The best way to cope with shame is to recognize it and OWN IT. For example saying “man I am feeling so shameful right now.” It is important to model this for children and help them recognize when they are feeling shame and others around them maybe feeling it to help with emotional recognition and expression.
In sessions we work to learn how to not play “the shame game” and take ownership for our mistakes and grow from them! (kids and parents!)
