Teach Your Children to Identify, Label, and Express Their Emotions

  Early childhood is full of learning joys and challenges for parents and children. As a parent, you might be concerned about preparing your child for school by facilitating their ability to name colors, letters, and numbers. But building your child’s emotional knowledge by teaching them how to identify, label, and express the emotions they feel, is just as essential (and possibly more so) as scholastic achievements. Children with more of this emotional intelligence have fewer mental health problems. Strengthening your child’s emotion knowledge is one way to reduce their risk for developing anxiety and other emotional issues later on.Early childhood is full of learning joys and challenges for parents and children.
