Manage Intense Emotions – Part II – Flipping Your Lid & Your Kids


How many times have you heard of the saying “s/he flipped her/his lid”? I know I’ve heard it several times growing up. It was a phrase often used when a person lost control or become irate or angry.

But, where did this term come from? What does this term really mean? Why does two ‘flipped lids’ not work? What’s the science behind it all? This and more will be addressed in this week’s video blog.

Below, let me know what points did you enjoy. You can also post on PeaceWorks Coaching Facebook page.
