Children and Emotions, Part 2

What does it mean to have “emotional agency”? 

Emotional agency means knowing that the only emotions I have control over are my own. This is an important lesson for children, because then they understand they are not responsible for making their parents happy or sad.

This is not the same as giving them permission to misbehave! Instead, it is giving them empowerment — when they see you choosing to think thoughts and feel emotions that serve YOU, they’ll be able to do the same.
