Talk about FeelingsNovember 07, 2017
Be sure to talk with your toddler about their feelings to help them understand and manage them as they grow. Children who have a strong social-emotional skills are able to do better in school and socially.
When your child is happy, sad, angry or bored talk to them about it! Recognize the way they’re feeling and talk about what is the reason behind that emotion.
It’s especially important to talk about negative emotions so they do not feel scared or think there is something wrong with the way they are feeling.
Visit your school’s Lending Library or local library and find books about different feelings you can read together. Talk about times they might have felt the same feelings that are being described in those books and wonder what the characters in the book might be feeling to express concern, curiosity and empathy.
