Feeling too much, too often
When emotions become too frequent or intense, a child can feel preoccupied by the emotion and this can impact learning, behavior and relationships. When a child’s emotions are stable they are better able to learn in school and home and tackle developmental tasks. They are more able to handle the day to day stressors of life and accept help when they need it.
