It happened again. My toddler got angry. I mean, really, really, angry. She dropped her ice cream on the pavement and it splattered across her toes. Within a second, she took a deep breathe and let out the most monstrous scream. You know, I don’t really blame her either. Ice cream is pretty serious business in this house. I could have told her to get over it. I could have told her to stop crying. Instead, I let her feel her monstrous emotions and waited. Surprisingly, because we have been doing many simple emotions activities for kids, including this fun monstrous emotions printable, she was able to regain her composure, take a deep breathe and tell me just how she was feeling, allowing us to make a plan together to solve the problem.
