The emotions that you can see from your child since he was little are sad, angry and happy. But when a child has started to develop, then he will meet other emotions, such as feelings of shame, pride, empathy and others. So, it’s very important to introduce emotions to children from an early age, so that children can express their feelings well and not easily have tantrums in handling their own emotions.

Talking about emotions to children.
The first thing you need to pay attention to is introducing the kinds and types of emotions to your child. Mostly, a child who does not know about emotional issues will be confused about how to express his emotions so that he will end up venting his emotions in the form of attacks. Talking about emotional issues to children will teach him how to respond well to what he feels in his heart.
Helping children in finding out the causes of their emotions.
When a child is emotional, wait for the emotions to subside. After it subsides, the mother can ask and help the child find out what causes him to be emotional by asking him to talk. After the mother knows the cause, here the mother can help the child how to solve the problem that makes a child’s emotions rise.
Give your child plenty of time when emotions are calming down.
Talking to your child when you are angry will only make the anger worse. For this reason, mothers must give free time to children so that children can find peace to reduce their emotions. Don’t let this happen, when the child’s emotions are rising, but the mother nags or scolds the child, because that will trigger a bigger problem. Because when the child is in an emotional state, it will be difficult for him to digest the information that the mother provides properly.
Praise the child’s good behavior.
As a child, you will certainly feel happy when you get praise from your parents. The behavior that the mother gives can be one way to teach children to reduce their angry habits, because children will feel that they always get attention from their parents. Eits.. But mothers should not praise their children excessively yes, because it will have a bad impact on children in the future.
5.Teach children how to control their emotions in a simple way.
A simple way that mothers can teach to stabilize a child’s emotions, one of which can be by helping him inhale slowly in a count then exhale. Because this method is very effective for reducing emotions in everyone.
Teach children how to express feelings.
The habit of a child when he is emotional will act excessively such as shouting, screaming, and throwing objects around him. Here, mothers can teach children how to express a child’s angry feelings in a better way. For example, when a child is angry, teach them a good word or sentence that indicates he is angry. So, the child will be able to learn to process his actions when he is in an emotional state.
Don’t let your child suppress his emotions.
Moms, never allow children to suppress their emotions, because when children are emotional, the heart rate will increase so that it can increase the child’s risk of violence.
