These days, Faith has been displaying a lot of emotions. There are a lot of pent up feelings in her and we often find her releasing those emotions through crying. We believe there are better ways of managing them and that we need to teach her that all feelings are okay but that doesn’t mean all actions are acceptable.
I thought this book is apt to talk to her about this issue. In this book, Sophie was enraged when her sister demanded for a turn to play with her stuffed gorilla. The sister got her way and in her anger, Sophie tripped over a toy truck. She ran out of the house and into the woods, and finally calmed down as she noticed the nature surrounding her.
In a few months’ time, we can anticipate the two children fighting over toys and I thought this story is a good platform to talk to Faith about managing her emotions.
When that time comes, we certainly hope it wouldn’t be that painful. 😩 Oh well, this is part of the growing up process, I guess.
More cheers than tears, maybe?
