Teach Your Child About Emotions

We all have emotions – good and bad – and no one is born with a natural ability to cope. Children need other people, especially their parents, to teach them about emotions. This set will help your child to understand and learn to cope with emotions, focusing on love, happiness, sadness, anger and fear.

Beautiful, Engaging Materials

You might expect a resource about emotions to be cute, but we promise you will be so happy when you get your box and open it! Our care and attention is shown in beautiful illustrations, touching stories and fun games. You will want to start playing with your child straight away, and the activities will strengthen the loving bond between you. You’ll fall in love with My First Emotions!

For A Healthy, Happy Life

My First Emotions is based on the latest research about emotional awareness, validation and regulation in both children and adults, and the effects of parenting styles. Early emotional awareness lays the foundation for a healthy, happy life for your little one, from relationships to job success.
