Raising kids is an everyday challenge, especially when it comes to how to react to emotions and our child’s personal thoughts. Now imagine that as a student or classroom teacher with around 20 children growing and changing and developing their own personal thoughts and emotions. It can be quite a challenge. Having a child that is confident in how they react to their emotions is key to their success.
Teaching your child to identify with their emotions is so very important. Feelings are normal they are part of being a person. Sad, happy, angry, excited, scared, shy, and jealous are all feelings they need to learn to express appropriately. Parents and teachers play a vital role in helping a child identify those feelings and encourage them to express them. As our children mature their inner thoughts can become something very powerful and how to help them understand them is even more powerful.
How many times a day do you use your thought monster?
You know the person that reminds you that you didn’t get the laundry put away. Or that you’re not teaching enough to your child. Perhaps the one that tells you’ve been too busy to see your friends recently. The one that told you that you are a super star getting all the kids to bed on time with no drama! All these inner thoughts challenge the way you think of yourself as a mom, friend, wife and for me even a certified educator who’s not in a classroom.
Can you imagine what goes through our children’s thoughts each day about themselves as they are developing? Then add friends and classmates into the mix who share their thoughts about our children at time kind and at times not to so kind. How do we give them the tools to deal with all of these emotions and self thoughts?
