Last week we talked about creating an interest for your child’s own emotions.
In today’s “1 minute Peppy Parenting” we talk about different feelings that your child could experience in different situations by using “The map of Emotions”. The purpose is to show your child that it is OK to feel differently.
Exercise; Use the map above (or draw your own). Let your child color their map using different colors for different feelings.
Ask; Can you point at one feeling and think about something that makes you feel that way? Repeat for each feeling.
- Which feeling did you like the best?
- What can you do to be… (Ex. happy, afraid)
- What do you do when you are…
- Is it possible to decide what to feel in different situations?
Purpose; To shed light on the fact that it is OK to feel differently and that all feelings are equally important.
Want to experience more? To provide every child and family with the same opportunities to develop emotional intelligence and to take our stand in the fight against bullying we decided to make our award-winning game Peppy Pals Beach free for one week ending October 9th. Make sure to get Peppy Pals Farm at the same time to have dubble the fun! And don’t forget to use the questions for discussion to interact with your child while playing.
