A colleague had passed along this video resource to me called Being-With and Shark Music, and I felt it to be insightful and valuable for parents to understand what happens in the emotional dynamics between parent and child. It speaks to the importance of awareness of our past experiences with emotions, which the video calls "shark music". And discusses how to support children's relationship with their emotions.
