While Sochu stories made you think, Sochu+FEELU stories aim to help us recognise and talk about our feelings and emotions! Why is it important to understand our emotions? Children (and adults!) need to develop strategies for managing their emotions, so that they can build social-emotional skills. Being aware of our emotions can help us talk about feelings more clearly, avoid or resolve conflicts better, move past difficult feelings more easily, and build better relationships with family and friends.Some people are naturally more in touch with their emotions than others. The good news is, everyone can be more aware of their emotions. It just takes practice. But it's worth the effort. Emotional awareness is the first step toward building emotional intelligence, a skill that can help people succeed in life.
