“New York Metro Parent” Magazine Endorses Emotional ABC's for Teaching Social Emotional Skills


Navigating the emotional complexities of childhood can be tough, and it’s even tougher for kids who don’t know how to express their emotions. Studies show that kids equipped with basic emotional skills find greater academic and social success. The Emotional ABC’s (for ages 4 and older; $85) program helps parents teach their children how to manage and make sense of their emotions. Kids will meet new friend Moody, a lovable (and aptly named) monster and, via a DVD, discover how to read non-verbal facial and body clues given by others. Five activity books and a card game reinforce concepts through pictures, coloring, and other fun activities. Most importantly, the ABC’s Toolbar teaches kids how to recognize, express, and address their personal feelings.
