Imagine going through life and not being overwhelmed and taken over by emotions.
Imagine fully understanding what you feel and knowing how to navigate through each emotion for a smoother ride through life.
That’s what you can give your child by helping them learn about their emotions with the My Feelings Box. We might not have learned this as children but it’s not too late and we can make sure that our children get this skill set as early in their lives as possible.
A tool to guide kids to get smarter with their feelings
Sometimes, as parents, we can use a little support when it comes to preparing our children for life. We want them to learn essential life skills, we want them to be the best they can be and most of all, we want them to be happy. Our My Feelings Box is a playful approach to integrate into everyday life so kids can learn to:
We so wish we would have learned all of this as children, make sure your kids don’t miss out.
The My Feelings Box equips your child with the important life skill of emotional literacy and emotional intelligence.
Do you ever wonder what is going on inside your child’s head? Do you every wish you could help them understand and manage their emotions better? And where do we even start…
It can be a challenge to really recognize and handle our emotions. Even as adults, we often we don’t fully comprehend what is going on inside us, what exactly we are feeling or why we feel a that way. And yet we all have feelings all the time so it’s a critical skill to have. Then it’s a whole other challenge to try to support and teach our children to understand and navigate through their emotions.
We do the best we can every time they are angry to calm them down or to comfort them when they are sad, but what more can we do to equip them for a smoother ride through life? We can give them the tools and skills to master their emotions and as a result have better relationships, be better at school and have a smoother ride through life. This starts with learning to know exactly what they are feeling, why they feel it and to consciously choose the best possible way to act. That is what the My Feelings Box was created for.
The My Feelings Box is a solution to “unlock your emotion superpower” (adult speak: learn how to understand and manage feelings). At it’s most basic, it is a tool and prompt to help your child find the right words to describe what they feel, to develop their emotion vocabulary and their emotional literacy. You can suggest feelings from the My Feelings Box to help them identify what they are feeling until eventually they find the words themselves.
Finding the right words for how we feel is really powerful. It decreases the power of uncomfortable feelings and anchors the “positive” ones. And once we know what we are feeling, we can also respond in a more informed and conscious way.
The My Feelings Box also includes a fun guide to help children “unlock their emotion superpower”. It explains what emotions are, where they come from, what they want us to do and also what each specific feeling is trying to make us aware of. It offers children a fun and engaging way to learn the important life skills of harnessing their emotions and developing their emotional intelligence.
The My Feelings Box can be used by children on their own so they have a neutral place where they can turn to and express their feelings. It is also often used by parents and children together. They often use the Feeling Magnets to help each other find the right words to express themselves. It serves as a conversation starter and further strengthens your bond with your child.
The My Feelings Box is also used in classrooms, councillors offices and therapist praxis’.
