Feelings & Emotions

It's important for the development of children's emotional wellbeing that they learn to identify and recognise their feelings. When you can recognise your emotions it helps you to:


  • Understand the reason behind your emotion
  • Feel more in control
  • Ask for help
  • Be a better friend
  • Manage your emotions


Watch the video clip below from 'Inside Out' as a starting point to talking about and recognising emotions with your child.
