My daughter was upset and crying and running to her room again. It had been just another small kerfuffle and she seemed to have had another extreme reaction in comparison to the situation.
This was becoming a common occurrence and when I talked to her about it she didn't want to talk. I decided to let her have some time before I talked to her again.
When I did sit with her, I ask her some questions softly. I asked how she was feeling and she had a hard time deciphering how she felt.
I had to talk her through a few emotions to help her. She was able to sort through it and she said she didn't want to feel that way anymore.
We talked about how to deal with emotions and that we can decide to continue to deal with our emotions and let them ruin our day and interactions or we can pray and decide that we are done with them, let go and forgive wrongs and perceived wrongs.
Life as a parent is full of problem solving. Trying to figure out what our kids need, emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally, etc.
One of the biggest things for us is helping our children to understand how they are feeling. That is why we created this emotion booklet. You can read through the emotions with them look at the expressions and talk about each one with them. Children relate to visuals and actions better than just words.
