Emotional Intelligence - knowing FEELINGS.

Me and my Mam
I guess I was around 12.

What feelings do you feel at the moment?
We need to know our feelings.
If we are not  aware
It is tragic
because of many things …..

Such as missing out on

Helping children to share feelings - vital.
Only by sharing our own do we model such behaviour.
Being scared of feelings = NOTOK behaviours.

The best teaching is by living it.
Most of our learning
has come from adult figures in our childhood.
That can be good or bad modelling.

Difficult behaviour is an escape route
from unbearable feelings.
Learn how to manage feelings.
Feelings are SIGNALS.

A caterpillar looks nothing like a butterfly
but one develops from the other.

We can all change.
