WHO IS THE MY FEELINGS BOX FOR?
Do you ever wonder what is going on inside your child’s head? Do you every wish you could help them understand and manage their emotions better? And where do you even start…
It can be a challenge to really recognise and handle your emotions. Even as adults, you often don’t fully comprehend what is going on inside yourself. What exactly are you feeling? Why do you feel that way? And yet we all have feelings all the time so it’s a critical skill to have. Then it’s a whole other challenge to try to support and teach your children to understand and navigate through their emotions.
You do the best you can. We try to calm them down when they feel angry or to comfort them when they are sad. But what more can you do to equip them for a smoother ride through life? You can give them the tools and skills to master their emotions. As a result they’ll have better relationships, be better at school and have a smoother ride through life. This starts with learning to know exactly what they are feeling. Then they can understand why they feel each emotion and consciously choose the best possible way to act. That is what the My Feelings Box was created for.
WHAT IS THE MY FEELINGS BOX?
The My Feelings Box is a solution to “unlock your emotion superpower” (adult speak: learn how to understand and manage feelings). At it’s most basic, it is a tool and prompt to help your child find the right words to describe what they feel, to develop their emotion vocabulary and their emotional literacy. You can suggest feelings from the My Feelings Box to help them identify what they are feeling until eventually they find the words themselves.
Finding the right words for how we feel is really powerful. It decreases the power of uncomfortable feelings and anchors the pleasant ones. And once we know what we are feeling, we can also respond in a more informed and conscious way.
The My Feelings Box also includes a fun guide to help children “unlock their emotion superpower”. It explains what emotions are, where they come from, what they want us to do and also what each specific feeling is trying to make us aware of. It offers children a fun and engaging way to learn the important life skills of navigating their emotions and developing their emotional intelligence.
HOW TO USE IT
The My Feelings Box can be used by children on their own so they have a neutral place where they can turn to and express their feelings. It is also often used by parents and children together. They often use the Feeling Magnets to help each other find the right words to express themselves. It serves as a conversation starter and further strengthens your bond with your child.
The My Feelings Box is also used in classrooms, councillors offices and therapist praxis’.
