It seems like a bible for the emotions that sometimes get the best of you as a parent. I like that it guides you and suggests ideas in a gentle manor. If you are having a hard time with any kind of issue with keeping your emotions organized, then this book should help you.
The first line in this book asks you an important question?
“Would you like to choose how you respond when parenting feels intense?”
If you say yes or maybe, then this book is a no brainer. Navigating Emotions can help you and your family and your kids become more harmonious if you follow the guidelines. The book is only 28 pages, but it is FULL of wonderful suggestions. It doesn’t feel like a lecture, just a guidance from mom to other parents.
This book guides you for occasions like how to navigate around that you yelled at your child then felt bad afterwards. Or when you feel angry and the emotion keeps getting stronger and stronger the more your child misbehaves. Everyone has been there as a parent. Sometimes you had a bad day yourself and take it out on your child with yelling more often. This book is going to help you handle parenting in a more easy going manner.
I read the book and have definitely applied some lessons to my own behavior. I love my child up to the sky and down, and the sky never stops going up, but we all get a little angry sometimes!

It helps you relate and feel that these are normal emotions. Sometimes we just need a little help in realizing how to channel them better.
