It’s safe to say that many of the challenges we struggle with our kids stem from their inability to comprehend feelings and emotions the way you and I do. From a kid’s perspective, the tightening of the chest, the fast beating of the heart and the awful, cloudy feeling is incomprehensible. And so they act up, or withdraw, or hit instead of communicate because these feelings remain too confusing for them.
That is, until we define these emotions and label them as ‘mad’ or ‘worried’ or ‘sad.’ Just as importantly, we highlight happier feelings of pride and joy. And slowly, as they begin to build their repertoire of emotions (including their definitions and symptoms), kids learn that feelings come and go. That feelings don’t define them—they aren’t bad boys or girls and have nothing to be ashamed of. And they learn to cope with feelings and learn that everyone goes through them at some point.
Over the years, kids learn to handle their emotions and the proper ways to express them. What better way to boost that knowledge along than with reading books about feelings?
