A Cloudy Day Story
Rosita is frustrated because she can’t join her friends at the movies. Mami reminds Rosita that on cloudy-feeling days, we can talk about our feelings. Together, they grumble and shout their frustrations out, and Rosita feels a little bit better. What are some other ways you can help children get their feelings out? Try taking slow breaths in and out. Or say the feelings out loud, then wrap them up with a big hug.
