This new addition to the Lessons of a LAC (Little Anxious Creature)series will give your child a way to think about mood. Specifically, how the way they feel is influenced by how they are viewing things.
As always, early intervention is our aim. Educating children early about how thoughts affect feelings is taking great steps forward! For them to tune into their feelings and wonder what glasses they are wearing in order to feel those feelings develops important emotional skills. For example, self-awareness, self-reflection, self-enquiry and puts them in a position of choice: to change feelings, change the colour glasses they are wearing (i.e., the way they are viewing things/thinking).
