Why Talk About Your Feelings?
Today kids are bombarded by so many scary events flashed over TV and the Internet. As we move into an age where bullying can be done on the computer and pictures can reach millions with the click of a mouse, we need to address, at an early age, the intense emotions experienced in childhood and adolescence
Feelings Can Be Hard to Explain.
Everyone expresses themselves differently. Sometimes we just don’t know how to say “I feel lonely” or “I feel scared”. Using whimsical characters the WorryWoo storybooks offer a way for a child to identify with their feelings in a creative and humorous way.
Empower Your Child.
Teaching your child to talk about their feelings at an early age not only empowers him/her to clearly express themselves but also offers a great opportunity to start an ongoing dialogue that can have positive lasting effects. With knowledge comes power, and with emotional understanding comes empathy, self-respect and resolution.
