Counsellor's Corner

Free Alberta Parent Event

Helping our children manage big feelings by developing a strong feeling language.

Parents will be given printable Kimochis feelings and resources so they can help kids learn the names of feelings and they will be given simple and effective communication tools to help their kids manage feelings.

These tools are the helpful response to challenging behavior as the parent can give the child a positive tool to replace challenging behaviors such as hitting and yelling.
