Handling Emotions in Positive Ways for Children 3 to 5, Preschool to Kindergarten
Raw emotions, as well as emotionally charged situations, are the source of a child’s first inner conflicts and discomfort. This inner turmoil can manifest in unacceptable behavior that can be troublesome to parents as well as children.
The LTA products are based on the premise that emotions are neither good nor bad. Instead, it is how one handles an emotion that is good or bad. Therefore, rather than categorizing emotions as good or bad, the LTA products categorize emotions as comfortable or uncomfortable. In addition, LTA teaches that uncomfortable emotions can be seen as positive, because they often motivate a person to do something that needs to be done.
The purpose of the LTA products is to educate young children about their emotions as well as the emotionally charged situations they encounter so that they can handle these emotions and situations in positive instead of negative ways.
Series Quote from Joy:
“The LET’S TALK ABOUT books help children deal with the early childhood emotions and attitudes that can prevent them from becoming responsible.”
