Some questions we will discuss:
1. can you name the most used emotions and what is an easy way to help children describe them?
2. when we as parents say to our children “don’t feel that” or “you don’t really feel that” how can that impact the child?
3. What impact can seeing parents argue and fight in the home have on a child’s emotions and mental health?
4. How can we help children to be intuitive to other people’s emotions and how can children support children in this?
5. How can we use emotion ‘colours’ in a conversation with our child each day? and what age would we stop using this method?

There will also be a Q&A at the end.
