Feelings with Milo is an emotional literacy App that teaches kids about feelings. The app strives to help children understand and, in the context of supportive relationships, learn to manage their emotions.
This simple, fun App provides the opportunity for parents and therapists to explore emotions and demonstrate that feelings, however powerful, come and go.
Here is a demo video: http://youtu.be/OjBxdZF05co
Children identify the image of Milo that best represents what they are feeling. This allows them to see that their feelings are normal.
The Feelings Train then shows children how their emotions change over time, and provides parents and therapists with an easy way to keep a record of the context for each reported feeling.
Studies show that children do much better when they are able to identify their feelings. Becoming aware of feelings is an important step in self discovery, self regulation and understanding of oneself and others.
“a good part of the effectiveness of [social emotional literacy] came from its impact in shaping children’s developing neural circuitry, particularly the executive functions of the prefrontal cortex, which manage working memory – what we hold in mind as we learn – and inhibit disruptive emotional impulses.” --Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.
