my feelings matter
The Way I Feel by Janan Cain
WHY ARE WE READING THIS?
We want to make sure that we are communicating “your feelings matter no matter what”. By identifying our emotions, we are normalizing them, communicating that they are important and allowing them the space to figure out what to do with these big emotions.
The Way I Feel is about a little girl who discusses the different emotions she feels. Some emotions are big, others small, either way she needs to know what to do with them.
