She reminds parents that young children have “no clue” how to handle their emotions without the help of their parents. Her encouraging video gives tips on how to help kids deal with anger and ways to ensure they feel loved and secure.

"I want my children to feel loved and to know that tomorrow is a new day for both of us, for all of us – and that we can do better."
