    Most kids don’t have the words to describe their big emotions yet (hence why they “act out”), so I can narrate instead: “I can see you are frustrated by the way your fists are balled up,” or “I can see you’re sad because you have tears streaming down your face— how can I help?”

    Another way to help would be to have a Feeling Chart so they can point to the picture they relate to (happy, sad, scared, angry, etc).
