When your brain perceives danger, your body and mind will go instantly into one of three modes—flight, fight, or freeze. Your heart races, your body tenses up, your hands shake, and your emotions take over rational thought.
You’ve entered The Flood Zone.
When children experience The Flood Zone, their behavior changes. They yell, bite, or run away. They withdraw and lose concentration. They blame and lie. In this state, children are unable to be rational, regulated, or otherwise compliant. Even the most motivated child (or adult) with the greatest coping strategies won’t be able to identify or manage their emotions in The Flood Zone.
In Flooded, counselor and bestselling author, Allison Edwards explains how parents, teachers, and counselors can identify when children have entered The Flood Zone. She also offers suggestions for teaching children (and adults!) how to regain control of their emotions.
In this book, you’ll get:
