Managing emotions

Emotions are a vital part of our everyday lives. Whether you’re having a good laugh over a text message or feeling frustrated in rush hour traffic, you know that the highs and lows you experience can significantly affect your well-being.

Your ability to regulate those emotions, in turn, affects how you’re perceived by the people around you.

Our page on Emotional Intelligence explains why it is important to understand your emotions and those of others.

The handout below will help your kid recognize and understand his/her own emotions, and explains why they are sometimes so strong. It offers some practical ideas about how he/she can manage his/her own emotions so that he/she can use and harness them, but are not governed entirely by them.
