Enjoy your children while they are little! What tips do you have for new moms?
  As a mom who homeschools, I have five littles who I teach and feed and clothe and clean and discipline and direct and wrangle and snuggle (etc etc etc!) with me most of every day. But sometimes I forget to simply enjoy them during that time. The practical responsibilities of home, school and family can overwhelm me. But, I have…

23 Children’s Books about Feelings

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?
