Help Your Children Express Themselves
Good|May 2017

Life Can Be Overwhelming for Young Children, but You Can Help, Says Hajer Saidi, Centre Director at Blossom Burj Nursery.

HELP THEM BUILD AN EMOTIONAL VOCABULARY

In fact, it is important to recognise both positive and negative feelings, and teach your child not to feel guilty about them. Show your child the different facial expressions using pictures of different characters in books or flashcards to help them understand the range.

DISCUSS WHAT MAY TRIGGER DIFFERENT EMOTIONS
