Expressing feeling and emotions

When, how and with whom to express feelings

This skill happens after a child has identified his/her feelings and emotions and is about deciding whether he/she would like to share this emotion with someone else and can be part of the emotion regulation process.

A classmate called you a name you didn’t like.

Wait and think about how you feel, how is your body reacting? (‘My legs feel heavy, my heart is racing etc’). Respond with how you feel about the other person, its ok to feel angry or sad. Its ok to be angry but do not hit the other person.
