Together in Feeling Town we can teach our kids Emotional Intelligence and Transition to “Time-In” Parenting
Mommy, I’m Ugly!” — Building Your Child’s Self-Esteem
• You know if we talk about it, we will feel better
• How about if I make some guesses?
• Did something happen with a teacher?
• Did something happen with one of the kids in class?
• Did somebody call you a name today?
• Maybe we can figure out what is hiding out underneath the “I’m Ugly.”
• When kids say they’re ugly, they are really saying that something hurt their feelings or something is bothering them.
• Let’s pick up our self-confidence from the floor.
• I’m sorry she hurt your feelings, kids can be mean.
• What if we say, “that hurt my feelings”.
• Get the Stress Out, Talk it Out ,Dance it Out, Play it Out
