(beyond, you know- happy, sad, mad) so I took the couple she had & then added a bunch more.
I've kept the faces in a little cup by Rob's bed & it's actually been helpful. The next time he had a fight with Syd after we made them, I went in his room to talk to him.
I snuggled him up, grabbed the angry face, & asked "Does fighting with Syd make you mad?".
"No," he replied grabbing two other emotions out of the jar. "I think it makes me sad & sorry."
Not only does it help him express how he feels a lot better, but it helps me to recognize & identify his emotions too.
Heck, I should probably carry some around so that when I cry people would know why, since I pretty much cry when I'm mad, really happy, sad, super embarrassed, tired, hungry... etc. Is it just me?
