Before I had kids, I just assumed that people came pre-wired when it came to knowing emotions. If someone is crying, they are sad. If someone is smiling, they are happy. However, for many children this can be a difficult concept. I have a good friend that was a teacher and is now a stay-at-home mom. I was at her house and she had a chart on the wall for her then-4-year-old showing different cartoon emotions with labels. Even if her son didn't know the word for the emotion he was feeling, he could often point it out on the chart. If you are working with a child trying to learn the complexity of emotions, today's top list is for you!
