Wisdom Wednesday 2 - What we can continue to learn from Mister Rogers

What we can continue to learn from Mister Rogers

As part of my continuing study of family communications, I get a regular email from Mister Rogers Professional Development: Helping Adults Who Help Children. It is also useful as a older grandparent with very young grandchildren.

This month, Hedda Sharapan, Director of Early Childhood Initiatives, shared some highlights of a recent presentation on Emotional Inelligence:

  • Help children know that feelings are natural and normal - and sometimes hard to deal with
  • Let children know they have ways to manage their feelings
  • Recognize that different strategies work for different children
  • Choose healthy ways
  • Ask the children - what helps you?
