Big feelings=big emotions.? At times children can get so upset and emotional that they don?t even know exactly what is happening to them.? They may feel out of control.? This happens to children often.? In order for children to be able to gain emotional composure they have to know what the feeling is behind the big emotion.? Once you have identified the feeling then you can get to the calming down piece.?
