Big Feelings Box
BIG FEELINGS BOX!
Emotional regulation is not a skill we are born with. Small children and kids with sensory processing difficulties can find new or difficult situations overwhelming and frightening. As parents and care givers we strive to provide our kids with the skills necessary to self regulate. Without these skills a child may present with anger, aggression, withdrawal and anxiety.
Emotional regulation allows us to monitor and recognise our feelings and react appropriately to the situation.
We hope this kit and accompanying booklet goes someway to helping your kids recognise and understand how they are feeling, acknowledge and accept it and equip them with some of the nesseccary skills and tools to help them self regulate.
Remember, small children will have big feelings.....this is completely normal and we think it is very important to acknowledge this and clearly express to your children that it is OK to be sad, or angry or afraid.
