It is important that we educate the emotions and feelings of the little ones. Emotions will provide us with the necessary information to move around our environment. For example, we experience joy when something good happens to us, and sadness when the opposite happens.
In addition, they will serve as an alarm system that will be activated when there is a change in our environment. It is like an adaptive resource that makes us activate a type of responses as we need them. For example, fear of a dangerous situation.
We must know that until 6 years of age a child's brain is not developed enough to be able to regulate their emotions. So that the little ones can be skillful in managing emotional states and thus can reduce their negative emotions and increase positive ones, we as parents must offer them an emotional education
As for feelings, they are the conscious and subjective evaluation of emotions. Therefore they can be educated just like we do with emotions
1. Manage and recognize our own emotions as parents. We must see how we feel about the behavior of our children and their emotions and know how to deal with it. We tend without realizing it not to let children express certain emotions, thinking that if they do they are disobedient, contested, whiny, fearful. Sometimes we have an expectation of how the child should be and when our child departs from that ideal we feel frustrated.
2. By getting at his height and looking him in the eye, we must help him calm down. Seek physical contact, but without trying to suppress your feeling or emotion.
3. Label emotions. Ask him what is wrong by calling the emotion by name. For example: 'What's wrong, are you angry, sad or scared?' Giving children the necessary emotional vocabulary to identify how they feel.
4. Help you see the situation from other points of view and offer help. Giving resources to the child is to convey to him that he can do something with what happens to him, that what he does can greatly soften what he feels. For example: 'I understand that you are angry, but do you know what happens? ... Do you want me to help you feel better?'
5. Stimulate the acquisition of social skills as important as empathy, that is, that they are able to put themselves in the place of the other, recognize and accept their physical, cultural or emotional differences. Helping the child to relate body expressions and gestures with emotions.
6. Work on self-control. The ability to handle strong emotions and not get carried away by the first impulse.
7. Help the child find his own resources, asking you questions so you can reflect on how to act in certain situations.
