    It can be challenging for a child to identify what they are feeling and are more likely able to describe what happened that made them feel the way they are. This is why communication and self expression are very important when learning about emotions. Let a child speak when they are feeling big emotions and listen to what they have to say. Help describe what emotions could be connected to what they are feeling/ showing. I love feeling charts and books about feelings, they help give memorable examples of emotions. Once you can identify emotions, you can work toward strategies for maintaining them.
