Do You Know Your Child’s Feelings?

“One thing that can be difficult for a parent to know is how your child is feeling. There is an easy way for your child to identify his or her feelings: Show your child the faces showing how people feel.  This is the chart you will find below.”

Do not judge the feeling your child selects. All humans have these emotions. God gives each of us a choice. It is our actions that matter. If a child can identify his or her feelings, it provides an opportunity to make a decision to choose the right thing to do. Without stopping to identify the feeling within us, we are controlled by our feelings and act without the opportunity to choose what God wants us to do.

    I didn’t realize how out of touch I was with my child’s feelings until we started using the feelings chart at the back of the Prayers from the Heart book. Now we always start here.

      Michelle, I find that the feeling charts at the back of the book also help me to identify how I’m feeling before I pray.

      Michelle, I find that the feeling charts also help me to identify how I’m feeling before I pray. Many times I am confused, and the charts even help me as an adult.
