What is an emotion?

An emotion is a reaction, a feeling to situations experienced in the face of an event.

They are states of beings that invade the present moment without the child or adult understanding where they come from.

These feelings are manifested by sensations specific to each person, such as a knotted throat, a lump in the stomach or a state of sweating.


Behind every emotion is actually a need.

How to adapt one's behaviour to the situation?

How do we move on?

For example, a child may become accustomed to reacting violently after an anger or a fear

It is possible to rectify this type of response to prevent it from becoming the norm .

Parents and adults can learn to interpret a child's emotions to respond constructively, in which case they may feel misunderstood because they can't get the child out of what he or she is going through.

At a very early age, children develop beliefs about themselves and others and their relationships with them.

When an event contradicts one's beliefs, it creates an emotion.

If, for example, mother is always in a good mood, on the day she is not, the belief collapses, which creates an emotional disturbance for the child.


Acknowledge emotions to decipher their causes in order to clarify for the child who he or she is and act on the effects.
