Children who do not identify emotions or learn to express it are usually confused as to why they feel certain way at times. Though the positive emotions do not bother them much, they are confused about anger, fear, sadness etc which doesn't make them feel so good.
It is important that we create awareness in children about different emotions they experience and also let them know it is ok to feel angry, sad or afraid at times. Knowing their emotions will guide them handle them properly and also to express them when needed without being ashamed of experiencing it.
We at My Giggle Garden encourage children to talk about their feelings and emotions. We listen to them patiently when they struggle to find the right words or actions to express themselves. Thankfully, our parents also understand the importance of it and teach it to their children.
Homeschooling did not hinder this important learning for our Gigglers. It is amazing to see them express different emotions so adeptly.
