Be An Emotion Scientist


Explore. Identify. Observe. Research. Explore your feelings and help your child explore their feelings as well. Explore why you are feeling the way you feel. Look deeper than the normal surface feelings of happy, sad, and mad. Identify what the root feeling is? Are you lonely, embarrassed, nervous, or excited? Observe your and others facial expressions and body posture. Research more about feelings and how to navigate them. Students can find stories about feelings on their School Counseling Clever page.
