Children’s Activity: Feelings Planner
So often, we find that children (and some adults) struggle to identify their feelings, and are unsure or do not know how to respond to them. A frequent struggle I see in my coaching work, is the challenge of differentiating boredom from sadness and stress from anger.
Being able to recognise our warning signs of different feelings supports us to be able to respond to them more quickly. We can also identify activities that help us to ease those feelings.
