What is Emotion Management?

Feelings can overwhelm the best of us. Learning how to recognize feelings in our body is an essential skill for all children. Some children can go from calm to angry in a matter of seconds. This often leaves the adults scratching our heads trying to figure out what happened. Often, the trigger to these strong feelings are internal and can be very scary for the child too. One way to help children manage strong feelings is to help them become more aware of what their body experiences when these feelings come. This can help children to become better at recognizing the feeling and slowing it down.
