Young children frequently experience intense emotions. Our job is to teach them healthy ways to handle these feelings. Visually demonstrate becoming lost in strong emotions in a way children can understand with the I Am Upset Smock.
“I Am” is the first step in the five-step self-regulation process. Role-playing with this smock helps young children recognize when they feel a strong emotion, and begins the process for helping them name the feeling, calm themselves and more… ultimately resulting in the lifelong skill of self-regulation.
These all-cotton smocks feature the Angry Feeling Buddy’s face on one side and the Sad Feeling Buddy’s face on the reverse. Includes 22-page instructional booklet with activities.
