Handling Preschoolers

Getting started at the home

Using the article How to Help Your Child Understand their emotions, I have found many simple tips to help when handling preschoolers. The first thing is to plainly state your child's emotion, an example being "you look like you're having a lot of fun". Talk about others' and your feelings as they happen. As an example let's say that there is a long line for a roller coaster,"Wow look at all the people like this ride, I'm glad we have chosen this ride". Help your child by labeling the world around you.

Healthy ways to explain how to deal with emotions are through books or stories and manage emotions as they happen.
