MD is soooo emotional. Let me explain. He has a speech delay and as is typical with this problem he gets extremely frustrated when we do not understand what he is trying to say. He yells and cries out of frustration. I have tried to "give" him words to use when he is upset like "frustrado" (frustrated), "enojado" (angry), and "triste" (sad). So far the only when he claims he feels is sad. I don't know if maybe that's just the only one he can say. The other day I thought of using these "feeling faces" to help him out. He really liked them, especially the sad one with a tear. I am hoping this will help him out as well as expand his emotional development which is an area we really need to work on around here. I got the feelings faces through a mental health therapist catalogue a long time ago to work with my young clients as most children are not the best at expressing what they feel with words.
