Amber Alert

Family Minute #7

So, your child’s angry and won’t talk?

My 9 year old son sometimes has a hard time expressing his feelings. He doesn’t understand what’s going on inside. So I'm teaching him five basic emotions: sad, mad, glad, ashamed, and afraid. When he clams up and won’t talk, I ask him which of these emotions he’s feeling. If he says he is mad, then I can ask why he is mad. By doing so, he can better understand what made him feel that way and I can teach him how to avoid or deal with the situation if it happens again.

Remember your family first.
