22. What do I do with my kids big feelings? How to help your kids understand what they feel

Have you ever thought about the fact that your children are experiencing hard emotions for the first time? Emotions like anxiety, sadness, loss,  and disappointment. 

Often we just tell them to stop feeling that, or minimize what they are feeling to help them 'feel better'. But, is that the best approach?

I think there is a better way to help children manage their feelings. One of the ways we can help them is by being with them in that feeling and also helping them label that emotion.
