A book to encourage children to talk about feelings. Feelings are complicated, it’s hard to teach kids about feelings because it’s a fairly abstract concept. It’s hard to describe how it feels to be sad, scared, or excited. It’s important to begin teaching kids about their emotions as early as possible since their feelings affect every choice they make. Teaching your child about his emotions will help him become mentally strong. Kids who understand their emotions and have the coping skills to deal with them will be confident that they can handle whatever life throws their way. Teach your child basic feeling words such as happy, mad, sad and scared. Talking about other people’s feelings also teaches empathy.
