Understanding emotions and our responses to them is central to developing emotional intelligence, which is a key factor in personal success. This 18 page PDF file is yours to keep and print as many times as you need, so your child can use them to work through multiple times. It guides children to think about challenging emotions as a temporary state, and one they can stay in control of, responding in a manner they choose. There are several approaches to understanding and dealing with big emotions in the bundle. It also teaches children how to recognise when they are ‘too busy’ and over stimulated and encourages them to find ‘unbusy’ activities to relax.
