Children and their tricky feelings
We want children to know that every single emotion is normal! Happiness, excitement, anxiety, disappointment, anger - and so many more. It's okay to have any of these feelings. In fact, being able to recognise, understand, express and manage a range of feelings is what we call 'emotional literacy' and it's a really important part of positive mental health and resilience.
We know, however, that some emotions can get too big and feel pretty horrible. They can make children and the people around them feel powerless. We call these emotions “tricky feelings”, because, while no feeling is fundamentally bad, there are definitely some feelings which can be tricky to understand and tricky to manage.
