Podcasts That Help Kids Talk About Feelings
Emotions are an inherent part of being human, but since kids are still growing and learning about the world, it can sometimes be hard for them to find the right words to express what they're feeling. When that happens, the result can be tantrums, shutting down, or withdrawing altogether. Don't worry: It's all part of growing up! To help, we've rounded up the best podcasts that prompt kids and families to have healthy conversations around emotions, offer ideas on how to identify moods, and teach how to celebrate and accept feelings instead of hiding them. Big feelings won't ever go away, but building skills for voicing them in productive ways will help kids feel validated and heard while maybe avoiding some meltdowns. (Spoiler alert: Those will still happen, but maybe you'll have a better understanding of why). You might even find some tools for helping you communicate your own emotions more effectively.
