The Counselor Corner ~ February 2017
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, what a great time to sit with your child and have a
discussion to help them understand how certain things make them feel. Try this activity called “The
Parts of My Heart” and help your child learn more about what triggers them to experience different
feelings. Help them reflect on the harder feelings (such as: mad, sad, nervous) and problem-solve
ways to cope with those triggers. Sometimes it can be surprising the answers they will give you!
