Parents are hungry for resources that help their kids with what experts would call Social Emotional Learning. Fortunately, there s a growing pool of resources for parents to support the social and emotional development of their kids. More than 3,000 titles come up in a search of the Amazon book store for children s books about emotions. One of our favorites is the WorryWoos series, a set of books and accompanying plush toys that do a stellar job of making emotions tangible for kids in a way that feels empowering to both parents and kids. We ordered Wince for our girls. He s the Monster of Worry who constantly feeds his WorryBug only to find that as he worries more, the WorryBug continues to grow until he s totally overwhelmed by the emotion. Eventually, he learns to control it. Movies like Inside Out and toys like the WorryWoos give kids and families the language to process difficult emotions by acknowledging the range of emotions that exist, and giving validity to all of them. Uh oh, you re feeding your WorryBug, has been a way more effective parenting tool than the blanket and disempowering statement, Stop worrying. There are also WorryWoos for loneliness, insecurity, frustration and more. --Huffington Post --Huffington Post

Not only is the Army an expert at making things go nothing as you thought they would, it does unsettling things to a 5-year-old like taking away the stability of his two-parent home, and moving him away from his school, friends and consistency. I have to come up with clever ways to remind him to take a chill pill and relax. Military life is full of chances for him to worry over stuff. Not only is the Army an expert at making things go nothing as you thought they would, it does unsettling things to a 5-year-old like taking away the stability of his two-parent home, and moving him away from his school, friends and consistency. The books walk readers through a short story written in a friendly rhyme that talks about the monster s problem and then how he or she solves it. In the case of Wince, the star of Don t Feed the WorryBug, he is presented with a lot of things to worry about unfinished tasks, places to go, etc. All of his worrying feeds a a WorryBug, until he has to figure out a way to deal with the giant, well-fed bug now occupying his kitchen. Working towards a solution distracts him from worry and teaches him not to let the WorryBug eat at him.I read this book to my 5-year-old over the weekend. A few days later when he, predictably, started to worry over something not going as planned I reminded him not to feed the worry bug. And you know what? It actually calmed him down. --SpouseBUZZ.com --Spouse Buzz
