Emotional empowerment – teaching children to manage their emotional health

The ability to understand, express and regulate our emotions is one of the most important skills we learn in life. For many, it’s a lifelong journey.  Why is Emotional Empowerment important for a child’s mental wellness? Children and adults with mental health conditions often struggle with strong, uncomfortable emotions like anxiety, fear, sadness or anger. Mental health therapy often focuses on teaching people a set of skills to better identify, express and regulate their emotions to improve their lives and relationships with others. 

Emotional Empowerment allows us to experience these emotions, while also teaching us how to have better control over our emotions and behavior when necessary – especially strong negative emotions like anger, fear and anxiety.   One of the most important parts of the human experience is feeling the range of emotions we go through in our lifetime. Even at a young age, the emotions children experience, from happiness to sadness, can lead to enriched life experiences and improved relationships on the journey to adulthood. 

Children experience a variety of emotions daily: positive, pleasant, negative, unpleasant – even painful. Throughout our development, we learn ways to identify, express and manage our emotions, but these skills do not come naturally or quickly for everyone. That’s why it’s important to teach our children how to regulate their emotions through Emotional Empowerment. Emotional Empowerment
