Emotions in Preschool/PK

Self-regulation is a very important and necessary skill for children to master.  For some children it comes naturally due to temperament. Other children need support while learning to develop these skills.  A huge part of PS/PK is about helping children experience feelings and find ways to manage them appropriately.  One of the scariest feelings for children is anger.  Anger can be driven by so many different factors including anxiety, confusion, sensory concerns and much more.  Take a look at this article for tips on helping your child manage this big feeling.
