Talking About Emotions

Lucy’s Blue Day is a book created with the intention to help children understand different emotions and reassure them that it is ok not to feel ok.  When Lucy experiences anger her hair turns red, and when she is sad it turns blue.  By showing a physical change with different emotions, it helps children understand the internal change that occurs.

This book will help me to understand my feelings more and to get better at understanding and dealing with stress.

Visual tools can be useful for helping children talk about their emotions. Mentally Healthy Schools have put together this easy-to-make emotion wheel to help children express what they are feeling.

Recognising Your Feelings

When we are able to recognise our different emotions and how they make our bodies feel, we can learn what we need to do to make ourselves feel better.




Feeling thermometers can be useful to help us recognise, and tell others, how we are feeling and what can help us to feel better.

Emotional Regulation

It can be difficult for young people to understand and communicate the way that they are feeling.  By using emotional regulation tools you can help your child verbalise the way they are feeling, acknowledge when they are feeling heightened and then work on strategies to calm down again.  Click on the pictures below to view the full PDF printable versions.
