Big Emotions!

I came across this lovely piece of writing ‘Teach Your Children How To Be Angry’. Anger is an emotion that we all feel at times and for our children it is a natural way to express themselves. Supporting children to manage these big emotions is a really important part of our work in school. I hope you find some of the ideas helpful for home too.

Finding the words to express feelings when you are a child is really hard and so we need adults to support them to show their emotions. To know that adults understand big feelings and teach children to recognize the emotion and why they may feel that way.

Please take a look at this page. There is a huge amount of advice, resources and free training for parents/carers on a wide range of subjects around emotional health and wellbeing.
