I am so happy to finally share this feelings expression tool with you!
On page 47 of my book Emotionally Attuned Parenting ~ An Easy + Fun Guide to Helping Your Child Through the Tough Stuff of Life I share with you the Feelings Ribbon Tool. You can use these feelings squares as part of your Feelings Ribbon. Hang a piece of fancy ribbon, braided yarn, fabric scrap, or a simple rope somewhere in your home that is visable to you and your whole family. Take some time with your child to make a list of all the feelings you can think of. You can then print this Feelings Ribbon Tool and go over each of the feelings. Ask your child to tell you of a time they felt each one. Then cut out the squares; you can attach them to squares of cardboard or laminate them for extra durability. Get some simple wooden clothespins and attach the feelings squares to the pins or use the pins to clip them onto the ribbon. You can place a small basket at the bottom of the hanging ribbon to store all the feelings and clothespins in for easy access. Practice placing all the feelings you or your child has at any given time on the ribbon to engage in feelings identification and expression. Show curiousity about what they have chosen each day.
If you would like additional guidance and parenting support specific to your child(ren) please contact me at email@example.com to book a parenting consultation. Parenting consultations can be provided worldwide via video or phone based chats.
