We don't always succeed in everything we try. Sometimes our determination is enough to make us keep trying, but sometimes we need someone who can encourage us and help us sustain the belief that we can succeed even when we doubt ourselves. We can learn from the strength of the people we trust the most, people who guide us, but do not take over for us. The life-long lesson lies in the willingness to keep on trying.

Language plays a key role in helping children deal with their feelings. Feelings are a part of being human. Of course, talking about feelings can be a challenge for people at any age; even more so for young children who don't use words well, especially when they are upset. Sometimes feelings can feel jumbled inside and are hard to sort out or name. That can be one of the times when children find it most difficult to tell us how they feel. Just like Daniel Tiger in DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD is still learning to express his feelings through words, young children must learn this skill from the trusted, caring adults in their lives.

In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children learn to use words to express how they are feeling so others will understand how they feel and/or what they what.

Both children and adults have plenty of times in their lives when they are flooded with emotions. We can all use practice in learning how to use words to separate our feelings from our actions.
