→ Ask what happened to make them feel this emotion?
This will help to connect the event that triggered a feeling. It's a good way to recognise what makes us feel good or not.
Giving a name to our emotion makes us feel in control.
Sharing that makes us feel heard.
→ Next is showing them how to choose how we react to an emotion. The outside of our emotion wheel shows us choices. Does reading help to manage your sadness? Does a cuddle help frustration?
Repetition and labeling helps to develop stronger emotional literacy!
