We also work hard to teach your child how to successfully manage their emotions. With the Emotional ABC’s, we help your child learn School Readiness: the ability to self-soothe and work through emotions is essential for school readiness. It is the foundation for social and academic success. The Emotional ABC’s also teaches Impulse Control: children need simple tools in order to slow themselves down and identify what they are feeling before they take action. Lastly, our preschoolers learn about Frustration and Acting Out: children become frustrated when they can’t recognize their emotions or when they lack an emotional vocabulary to express themselves. Parents are encouraged to learn more about the Emotional ABC’s by checking out the website.
