Parent: “I purchased a feelings magnet to stick to our fridge, which has helped myself and my 11 yo daughter identify how we are feeling to ourselves and to the others around us, both adults and kids. It was been so valuable for us, and even more so when someone doesn’t feel like talking. Thanks to Sara and all those at UPower for helping the world become a better place by supporting our youth to become more resilient and be the best people they can be”.
Parent: “My 5.5 yo said his tummy was sore. He had already had popsicles and some gummies. He asked for more gummies. Here are your other options. Major melt down. I explain “it is ok to be upset but you are not allowed to hurt yourself or others.” After crying on the floor for a bit, he goes to the kitchen and is very quiet. I’m listening and thinking he is trying to figure out a way to get gummies. I go into the kitchen. He is rearranging the magnets on the elephant face emotion board we have on our fridge. I say “I see that you are feeling sad, frustrated and irritated.” He comes over and we cuddle for a bit. After a little while, he asks for one of the foods I provided as an option. After eating, he goes over to the emotion board and rearranges the magnets to “happy”.
