All Things Children and Emotions

The Emotion Guide Collective connects you with others who are enthusiastic and purposeful about kids’ social and emotional learning. 

When you join, you’ll have access to discussions, activities, and practices designed to expand your fluency in the language of children’s emotions.

You’ll discover kid-friendly ways to talk about and respond to emotions and behaviors so you know what to say and do to create connection, teach new skills, and grow children’s self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and resilience.  

You Belong Here

Our membership is a mix of parents, family members, educators, counselors, coaches, and other helping professionals.

Some of our members work with children between the ages of four and twelve, others are parenting them, and many do both.

This is what we’re creating in the Emotion Guide Collective… 

We Help Turn Your “Now What?” Into “I Got This.”

The Emotion Guide Collective makes it easy to get trusted answers to your questions so you have the peace of mind that you’re doing everything you can to emotionally guide your children, students, or clients.

Our exclusive zero-distraction community gives you access to support, connection and conversation without the *squirrel* distraction of a million other things in your newsfeed.

It’s a judgement-free community that values diverse perspectives. We know there is always more than one right approach. We embrace curiosity looking to answer, “What works for this child in this moment?”

You Get Specific and Personalized Support.

You’ll be able to get right-on-time answers to your questions so you can confidently make decisions about how to tend to your growing person’s emotions.

You won’t have to sort through a Google search, wait for Amazon to deliver your book, or schedule an appointment with a professional to get answers to your burning questions.

You get personalized support instead of generic information from whatever Google page you land on that you then you need to sift through to figure out how or if it fits for you in your situation.

You don’t have time to hunt for solutions. You’ll have access to a growing library of resources and activities to teach children emotion regulation skills.

You’ll Get Other Emotion Guides In Your Corner.

It’s about connection! Tap into awesome brain power, support, and inspiration from counselors, parents, educators and others who are committed to guiding children through their emotions.

You don’t have to figure this out alone. Having the support of others who “get it” can make all the difference.

The Emotion Guide Collective is people-powered. We’re not about inundating you with static information. We’re about helping you connect with people so you can work together to untangle your challenges.

You’ll Have Peace Of Mind Around What’s Next.

Children are constantly developing and evolving. You’ll have ongoing support and solutions at your fingertips so you can confidently navigate the ever-changing landscape of children’s emotions.

The tools, strategies, and techniques that help them today may not be relevant tomorrow. After you master one challenge, a new one may emerge.

You’ll have the peace of mind that the Emotion Guide Collective is there for you whenever you need it.

The Emotion Guide Collective is where we gather to co-create a knowledge base of real-world experience, practical learning, and creative ideas to guide children through emotions.

Where can I learn more about guiding children through emotions?
In the articles on my website, Growing Up Confident, I share stories, tips, tools, techniques, and strategies about guiding children through emotions. You can learn more there.

Hi! I’m Kim Lange, founder of the Emotion Guide Collective.

I’ve been guiding kids through their emotions for over 23 years… first, as a special education teacher and for the past 19 years as a child and adolescent therapist.

In fact, except for a brief stint as a pizza delivery driver back in the mid 1990’s, every job I’ve ever held has been in service of children and their families.

In 2006, I opened my private practice in the coastal town of Wilmington, NC.

Through my work with my private clients, I created the Calming Compass©, a kid’s coping tool map and subsequently an online program to expand parents knowledge and skills for guiding their children through big emotions.

Why am I sharing this with you? It’s because all of this brought me to today… Me and you “meeting” each other online and talking about the Emotion Guide Collective.

Writing this to you now, my heart beats a bit faster, as I excitedly search for the words to explain why I started the Emotion Guide Collective.

I’d be thrilled if we positively impacted one child’s life, but how cool would it be, if together, we impact the world?

Kids need adults who are there with and for them when they are experiencing big emotions.  Adults they can talk to about the hard stuff. Adults who take responsibility for tending to their own emotions and who know how to respond instead of react during challenging moments.  Adults who can model and teach them emotional regulation skills.

What is possible when children grow up to be self-aware, compassionate, emotionally intelligent, and resilient adults?

Let’s create a world where we celebrate the uniqueness of every child. A world where kids can be unapologetically themselves.

A world where kids grow up loving who they are and where their struggles are no longer seen as an indication of their wrongness, but rather a signal that we as adults need to step up, challenge our beliefs, make new choices and provide a new type of support and guidance.

What might’ve been different for you, if this had been your foundation growing up?

You weren’t meant to do this in isolation.

The Emotion Guide Collective can be your cozy online community where you care for the children in your life, nurture yourself, and find solutions that work for you.

Together, we are creating a world where children grow up loving themselves.

If you want to be part of something that can really create change, I can’t wait for you to join us and get your first peek inside the Emotion Guide Collective.

See you inside!
