Negative emotions (anger, sadness, fear, jealousy) and the difficult behaviours that may follow (temper tantrums, whining) are normal in young children. Research has shown that not learning to manage negative emotions in the early years may result in later problems. This videotape suggests how parents can help young children understand their difficult feelings and express these feelings in ways that are socially acceptable. The information is presented in clear language and is suitable for parents from many cultures.SKU: 5-V-512
