Point Out Feelings

by Christine Hodge

While reading with your child or watching a tv, point out how a character may be feeling even if your child is very young. Point to the face in the storybook and say ”Piglet looks scared” As your child gets a little older, ask him  what he thinks. “How do you think Piglet felt when Tigger bounced in like that?”. Give him clues by pointing to the character’s face. Also it’s a great idea to try different words for emotions and feelings. For example, using worried or anxious to describe Piglet’s behavior is a great way to expand your child’s emotional vocabulary. Learn more
