Whole call: CC Notes 12-23-2020 https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-23WHOLEedited.mp3 Question: Can you explain the steps for using TSG for a 4yr old. He is quick to anger and call his siblings names, and at times doesn’t except a consequence calmly. Do we try 2 consequences like we do with the older kids? If he is angry and trying to hurt siblings, do we go straight to Calm down spot? What exactly is involved with the Calm Down spot? Is it timed? What happens if they come out as soon as you put them in before calm? Then after, do they receive the original consequence? What happens if they get angry again when you try to give a consequence? Any information about the calm down spot and dealing with an impulsive, quick to anger 4yr old would be so helpful. Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-23-20Q1.mp3 Good question. This is what I suggest for 4 year olds. …

Can you speak to emotion through the lens of self-government? For example, how do you process emotions and feelings that a child, or adult, cannot put into words, but it is there and inhibiting one’s daily functioning? What is the role of emotion? What about when underlying emotions are causing somatic symptoms that the efforts of managing are consuming one’s energy? Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-2-20-Q1.mp3 I’m glad you asked this question because I definitely need to talk more about emotions. I think people misunderstand me sometimes. Emotions aren’t bad… I’m actually going to announce an event soon for February dedicated to emotions. So watch for that. Why emotions? How do they benefit us? What is the role of emotions? cueues, flags, signs, etc. They alert us …

Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-16-20-Q1.mp3 I must have mentioned using a positive consequence system to help him calm down quickly or stay on the calm down spot without running away.
