Helping Children Manage Feelings

Just like grown-ups, children can have feelings for so many reasons. Times of uncertainty, stress, or change can cause feelings to feel even bigger. And every child expresses their feelings differently. Sometimes children need help from a grown up to learn how to notice, name, and manage their big feelings. ​
