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 “positive” 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 harnessing their emotions and developing their emotional intelligence.
Fantastic tool for kids and adults. Highly recommended! I think I may have to invest for the adult box for myself too!- Melissa, Mother of two
