You’ve heard the saying, “Everything I know I learned in kindergarten.” When it comes to emotional management it just might be true. You probably know some adults who need to go back to pre-k!
Learning to manage emotions is about knowing how to self-regulate and control emotions in a healthy way. Yes, all of our feelings matter. But we would like to teach our children what to do with 'the mad that they feel!' or the ‘fidgets that keep them off task!'
The stories, songs, activities and videos of PFL help do just that. The characters in our materials reflect real children and their many feelings. So join us and explore our products that teach children to recognize and regulate emotions, calm themselves, control attention, impulses and behavior, and express feelings in an appropriate way with newly found inner resources.
