WHAT IS AN EMOTION AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?
An emotion is anything that you feel-happy, sad, angry, hurt, resentful.
As adults we have been trained, for the most part, on how to handle our emotions. Experience is a heck of a teacher and we have a lot of it to get us through most situations.
But what about our children? Yes, they can mirror what they see in us, but does that help them to actually deal with their own emotions?
Are they able to understand what they see or interpret the way we handle certain situations and why?
Especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.
A lot of parents haven’t been through such an uncertain time in their lives. The stress, anxiety, and lack of understanding can be extremely overwhelming. Now, think about how your child may feel…
I like the idea of having a plan specifically for your child to use in order to calm their emotions. If they are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or stressed here a a few that can help.
