Children Behavioral & Emotional System
Recommended for children, ages 3 to 9.
Emotions don’t seem to stay put for too long. Learning how emotions flow gives us the awareness we need to curb our feelings on our own, making us active creators of our own happiness.
Inspired on the Chinese Tao and the movement of emotional energy, the GOOD PUPPY Children Behavioral System Emotions TAO Pinwheel depicts Roger running through a roller coaster of emotions with the wind. Since emotions are reactions to our thoughts, the key to mastering our emotions lies in mastering our thoughts. As children comprehend this, they may become less possessed by their emotions and may learn to curb them on their own by curbing their thoughts.
To implement this tool make sure to first study the GOOD PUPPY Emotions TAO Chart with children, explaining what each figure says, and how emotions change with thoughts. Then, put the GOOD PUPPY Emotions TAO Pinwheel together with the child and play!
To build this tool print both sides of the GOOD PUPPY Emotions TAO Pinwheel, cut it out, bend it pin it and attach it to a stick; then, put Roger to the test!
