Emotional. The dictionary of children's emotions


Since our children are born, we are always aware of what they eat, what they learn, their health, education ... but over time we realize that little things have been left along the way. Emotions, that is, the innate affective states that we experience since we came into the world and that help us to better adapt to our environment and different situations, are not always on our list of priorities about the things that we must know and teach to children. They are not always understood and polite. Have you taught your child to identify, know and express their emotions?

It has been a real emotion, a joy for me, to receive a copy of this Emotional. This attractive book, illustrated in detail by more than 20 illustrators, is a good educational resource for parents who want their children to know their emotions and develop emotional intelligence. What's more, through this book, parents can also learn to identify what your children feel and establish an emotional and closer dialogue with them.

The Emotionalist describes, in a simple and clear way, forty-two emotional states for both children and adults to learn to identify and express them. What are love and hate? What are joy and sadness? What are excitement and frustration? As the psychologist and psychotherapist Rosa Collado Carrascosa says in the prologue of the book, "Feeling is a privilege and learning to express our emotions will help us get closer to those we love."

I feel gratitude and at the same time admiration for the initiatives that somehow contribute to improving the new generations. This book is one of them. Through his advice, children can be more expressive, and learn to say not only what they learn but what they feel. It is so important to know what love, hatred, fear, sadness are… like insecurity, frustration, euphoria and melancholy.

If you want to acquire Emotional, you can do it through its website where you can also access some exercises for free that will help your children to better know their emotions. Along with the book there is also a ‘Gratitude Diary’, in which children can do a daily gratitude exercise. 'Looking for reasons to be grateful makes you feel better'.
