“Speak Your Heart”
- Label emotions as they relate to various situations.
- Describe how you feel (e.g., happy, sad, angry) as you engage in different situations.
- Tell your child why you are feeling the way you do (e.g., “I’m sad because _____.”).
- Ask how your child how he feels throughout the day. If he does not respond, give choices such as, “Are you happy?” or “Are you sad?” Repeat your child’s response.
