Little Ones, Big Emotions
Do you ever feel like your child is struggling with managing their emotions? Are you concerned about their mental health and well-being? If so, you're not alone. Many parents are facing the same challenges and it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to helping your child.
One approach that has been gaining popularity in recent years is social emotional learning (SEL). According to the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), SEL is "the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions."
In other words, SEL is about teaching kids how to recognize and regulate their emotions, communicate effectively with others, and make thoughtful choices in their daily lives. It's a set of skills that can help children succeed in school, relationships, and beyond.
One way to support your child's SEL development is by reading books that empower them to learn ways to self-soothe and feel better. These books can be a valuable tool for teaching children about their emotions and providing them with strategies for managing difficult situations. As a bonus, reading together is a great way to bond and spend quality time with your child.
Bloom Publications is proud to publish books that assist parents with teaching and building these important and necessary skills in their children. As parents, we all want our children to be happy, healthy, and successful. By focusing on social emotional learning and reading books that empower our kids to self-soothe and feel better, we can help them develop the skills they need to navigate life's challenges with confidence and resilience.
Remember, "Children must be taught how to think, not what to think." - Margaret Mead
