Children who have learned to express strong emotions such as anger and anxiety in a negative manner will most likely resort to aggression or other negative ways when confronted with a frustrating situation.
Teaching kids to manage their emotions is, therefore, an important step that can ensure their well-being in childhood and beyond.
One of the most effective ways in which you can help your child learn to regulate his emotions is by helping him understand that emotions are normal – everyone has them – and by helping his identify appropriate ways he can react to his emotions. This “Emotions kit” sets out to help develop your child’s emotional regulation skills. It couples practical tips with several tools adapted to 4- to 9-year olds.
- Helping your child understand different emotions
- Helping your child be more aware of his/her emotions and how these manifest in the body
