If your toddler has words for what they feel, they are less likely to have a tantrum. A child who can say โ€˜Iโ€™m angry!โ€™ is less likely to hit out. Ask your librarian to suggest some appropriate picture books ๐Ÿ“•๐Ÿ“—๐Ÿ“˜about feelings. Make โ€˜feelingโ€™ puppets out of small paper bags. Draw opposite โ€˜feelingsโ€™ faces on the puppets, i.e:
๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐—›๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐˜† โ€“ ๐Ÿ™๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ
๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ โ€“ ๐Ÿ™‚๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐—ฒ
๐Ÿ˜ก๐—”๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฟ๐˜† โ€“ ๐Ÿ˜€๐—›๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐˜†
Make โ€˜feelingโ€™ statements, such as:
โ€œItโ€™s my birthday, I feel . . .โ€
โ€œItโ€™s raining and I canโ€™t go out to play, I feel . . .โ€
โ€œMy brother knocked over my block tower, I feel . . .โ€
Help your child to choose the appropriate puppet to match the feelings.
