The foundation of children’s emotional development relies in their relationship with their parents. Based on the care and nurturing they receive through positive interactions with adults, children will learn to:

  • express with words their feelings

  • understand the emotions of others

  • control negative emotions when faced with difficult situations

  • deal with fear when faced with the unknown

  • calm down when in distress

  • control anger and learn from mistakes when faced with failure.

By being comforted and supported when dealing with emotions and through a strong child-parent bond, children will gain confidence and be better able to communicate their needs and understand those of others.
