Children – like adults – have strong negative emotions – anger, sadness, fear. How to express these feelings, without feeling like a bad person, is always an issue for kids. So when we help children express those kinds of feelings in a constructive way, without judging them, then it helps them feel closer to us and like we care about them. So, how would you do that? Well, here are some ways to go about doing this.
Let’s say that you tell a friend of yours that you are really angry because you got cut off in traffic. And they tell you, “No, you’re not angry. You just got temporarily frustrated.” How would that affect you? Well, since you are laying on the horn, screaming at the top of your lungs, and giving them the one-digit salute, you would think, “I don’t know what planet you come from, but it’s not mine!” We do this to children all the time!. We deny how they feel.
