Strong feelings are hard to cope with at any age. But they are particularly difficult for small children, who have no experience or perspective. They may not even have the words to express what they’re going through. Includes background notes for parents. Author Moroney is child psychologist from Royal Children’s Hospital, Melb. Ages 3+. Each of the books in this series has been carefully designed to help children better understand their feelings, and in doing so, gain greater autonomy over their lives. Talking about feelings teaches children that it is normal to feel sad, or angry, or scared at times. With greater tolerance of painful feelings, children become free to enjoy their world, to feel secure in their abilities, and to be happy.
