In this Manners Made Easy Video we show that children also experience different feelings, such as anger and being scared. However, perhaps do not understand why they are feeling the way they are or even understand why they behaved in such a way. Children are a lot more honest in expressing their feelings than adults are – we tend to hide our true feelings as they often make us feel vulnerable.
Watch children play – look at the different emotions or feelings that are open and honest. Children experience joy or happiness, sadness, anger, jealousy, irritation or frustration. Once their emotion has been vocalized or enacted, it is passed and they move on. If you ask a child to explain the emotion, they will look at you quite quizzically – not understanding the reason for your question or explanation.
