Jennifer Cohen Harper, author of several books on mindfulness and yoga for children and adults, offers this simple reframe for when a child appears to be acting out. Many times, this behavior is a sign that they are experiencing anxiety. It’s tempting to think, this kid is the problem, but a better reframe is to think, this kid is having a problem. This simple mindset shift can help activate your compassion.
