All children need to taught how to handle their emotions. A leading psychologist says that one important question to ask children when they are upset is: Is this a big problem, a medium one, or a small one? Getting children to place importance on the problem allows them to learn how to react appropriately to situations and not to blow them out of perspective.
Additionally, children and adults should work to properly identify their emotions to better understand how to regulate them.
