With the turn of a dial and a flip of a switch, my son’s emotions can change in a moment. One moment we are laughing and joking about his latest joke he’s learned and then the next moment, he is screaming “I’m the worst. You don’t care about me.” and other hurtful words that seem to send a sting to my heart as he stomps away in a fury. What in the world just happened? I am always left a little baffled and a little bewildered.
These out of this world emotions seem to take over his body like something from another planet and our communication is halted. The truth is… emotions can be overwhelming and not only for the parent. So how can we teach kids about out this world emotions that seem to take over their little bodies? Without getting angry at my son’s outbursts, I give him space to feel those big emotions and when he is ready we play a few simple emotions activities for kids, including this fun out of this world big emotions printable activity.
