Every day there is more talk about the importance of controlling emotions, especially in such a demanding and fleeting world in which we live. Emotions are important because they not only help us communicate with others, but also because they help us to better perceive our emotional state. What can we do to make our children smart in their emotions? What can we do to help them learn to control their emotions, transform negative ones into positive ones and learn from them?Transform negative emotions of children into positive
Children manifest their emotions through their body: sweaty hands, crying, uncontrolled laughter, especially in situations that have never lived or in which they have to star. My daughter, for example, always during the takeoff of a plane gets cold and with excessive perspiration. Then he calms down, but this moment is repeated again and again, for more plane trips he makes.
Emotions or feelings such as fear, insecurity and anxiety are normal but to a certain extent. They become negative when they prevent children from making decisions or finding the solution to a problem. They are negative when they paralyze children and prevent them from doing something they like. Therefore, it is very important to teach children to convert them from negative to positive. How? Well, here are some ideas:
1- The first thing is to make the child aware of their negative emotions. It is necessary to identify each one of these emotions and have them as something that can hurt us a lot. Talk to your child, share your emotions with him and explain how you try to control them.
2- To teach children to control them, it is also necessary to guide children to understand them. Why am I afraid? Why am I sweating so much just to speak loudly in the classroom? Nothing better than they detect it and look for the reason of their emotions.
3- It is important to teach the child that there is no justifiable reason for these emotions to paralyze them or prevent them from doing something they want and want. That you have to fight them every time they appear and not let them dominate you.
4- Put the transformation into action. That is, instead of feeling insecure, better feed their self-esteem and build up value; instead of being afraid, it is better to face it with strength, faith and determination; instead of feeling anxious, better concentrate on living well in the present moment; Instead of wishing what others have, better congratulate them for having it.
