Thoughts and feelings make up a lot of a daily lives. Children and young people are developing their understanding of thoughts and feelings and this can be challenging. We have collected a set of resources to help families with emotional well being, ranging from finding ways to describe different feelings to managing ‘melt-downs’ when they become too overwhelming. We know that some young people find it hard to express their thoughts and feelings with words and they might show as behaviours. You may also find our page on managing behaviour helpful.
