Girls on the Run!
GOTR Story of the Week!
Hope, with an injury, was still a great teammate when she showed up to practice ready to help out any way she could! She acted out emotions such as joy, anxiety, confidence, and anger and the other girls had to guess her emotion and then categorize it as uncomfortable and comfortable.
This week's lesson is particularly fitting given the nature of our week. We hope the girls can use the skills we discussed to help cope with whatever emotions and feelings come up for them in the coming weeks.
Great Job girls--Ms. McGarrigle & I are continuously impressed by your enthusiasm, teamwork, and cooperation during GOTR!!!!
THANKS FOR MAKING GIRLS ON THE RUN SO MUCH FUN!!!
Lesson 6: Being Emotional is Healthy
In Lesson 6 we explored uncomfortable emotions such as anger, sorrow and frustration and recognized that experiencing these emotions is part of being human. The girls learned that there is no such thing as "bad" emotions. We taught them that some emotions are uncomfortable, but they are NOT bad. We learned strategies to identify and express their emotions in a healthy manner.
Connect with your child: Ask, "What did you learn about uncomfortable emotions?" Ask if they feel comfortable expressing their emotions. What happens if we feel like we can’t express some of our emotions?
