Young children experience feelings and emotions just liked adults, however, they often don’t have the vocabulary to accurately express how they are feeling at any given time. During times of feeling scared or overwhelmed, young children find it hard to navigate these types of emotions. However, there are many things you can do to help children express their emotions in different ways. Mood trackers are an easy way to track how children are feeling every day over a period of time. Adults may enjoy tracking their emotions as well!
