Managing big emotions is hard, whether you are four or six or forty six! Helping children learn to regulate and manage their emotions is an ongoing process that involves helping them to recognise a range of emotions, learning to express their feelings verbally, learning to calm oneself down in the face of overwhelming emotions, and learning to treat others with kindness and empathy. Useful in the home and classroom, this collection of resources and activity suggestions contains tools that can act as useful prompts for discussion with children about a wide range of emotions – our physical and emotional responses to them, as well as guide as for working with your child to develop effective strategies for managing overwhelming stress and emotions.

Learning to master big emotions and the associated social skills of emotional regulation helps children to succeed not just in childhood but right through to adulthood.
