I have one child that is overly emotional, one that buries their emotions until they explode, one that is the peace maker and another that is a mix of all 4! Emotions and feelings can be quite hard to understand sometimes and some children needs some extra special care in learning how to handle what they are feeling. This is why I like using fun printables and crafts to help them.
Scholastic My Mini Books of Feelings – you can ask your little ones the questions and fill the answers in for them, then they can color the pictures.
