Big Emotions (Home + Classroom)
We all know that little children have VERY big emotions. And until their brains mature and are better able to reason, it’s our job to help them learn appropriate coping skills, that can help them right now and throughout their lives. For kids, something as simple as a change in routine or a sock that doesn’t quite feel right can trigger a landslide of anxiety and stress. And these feelings are very real, and very scary for our kids. So welcome! Take a deep breath; stay awhile. I’m hopeful that the weight in the pit of your stomach will finally relax because you now have a plan…and it all starts with one small step forward.
