Encourage your kids to calm down and let out extra energy by suggesting some of these coping skills as part of coaching your kids’ emotions.  A child should engage in actions such as these before he or she becomes overwhelmed by emotions.  Demonstrate the appropriate skills to your kids, when they’re needed, to model acceptable expressions of emotions. 

To work well in most situations, each skill should be practiced for at least a minute.  After that, if necessary, move on to another.  Feel free to add your own ideas to the list, and keep it handy for when need arises.
