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.

1. Develop emotional literacy

Children will develop the capacity to recognise their feelings in the moment and to engage in behaviours that help to manage tricky emotions.  

2. Release tension and stress

Children can release built-up tension through physical activities and breathing techniques designed to calm the body and mind. 

3. Promote positive emotions

The activities cultivate creativity, imagination, movement, and mindfulness, and in doing so, 

elicit happiness, fun and laughter. 

4. Increase focus

The grounding techniques help to increase focus and concentration, enabling children to approach the 'doing' aspects of their lives. 

5. Practice self-compassion

Children are encouraged to nurture themselves through a range of activities that invite self-kindness and self-care. 

6. Enhance self-esteem 

Children develop their growth mindset with a 'can do' attitude and increased confidence in coping with tricky feelings. 

We are a social business on a mission to nurture children’s emotional well-being and mental health by fostering important psychological skills and experiences. Led by child psychologist Dr. Gail Sinitsky, we provide resources and workshops that are informed, effective, and engaging.

 

50% of our profits go towards supporting children who are vulnerable or disadvantaged.
