Read books that explain & discuss feelings. It’s a great way to give an opportunity to express emotions. By reading the story each child or adolescent can compare their own feeling state and emotions, see whether it is the same or different and to explain how it is for them. Stories also help children to see they are not alone in what they are feeling. That, is one of the major factors of feeling so upset is that they feel different or alone, not realising others have felt this way too. The book can also give you the opportunity to express your experience of a similar state. Winning all round. Trace Moroney has done really good books on feelings, you can also check St Luke’s Publishing who have great books and tools for working with emotions. Don’t forget Hay House also have childrens books that help with confidence and being yourself, Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer and Doreen Virtue have all published childrens books.
