Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood 5 Practical Strategies to Help Kids Deal with Emotions

  Daniel Tiger

My son absolutely adores Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood on PBS.  This show was designed to help support a child’s social-emotional development and to give kids practical strategies for dealing with various emotions.  One of Daniel Tiger’s lines is,” If you feel like you want to roar, take a deep breath and count to four. 1, 2, 3, 4.”  When Baybah is feeling upset, we remind him about what Daniel says.  He takes a deep breath, counts, and feels so much better.  That is just one of the things that he has learned from this amazing show.

PBS KIDS has developed five simple tips, adapted from DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, to help parents support their children’s social-emotional development, and to give kids practical strategies for dealing with various emotions:

Tip 1: When your child is disappointed about something, help him/her find something positive about the situation to focus on instead.

Tip 2: When your child gets angry, encourage him/her to take a deep breath and count to four.

Tip 3: Encourage your child to keep trying when he/she is struggling with a challenging task.

Tip 4: When your child is feeling apprehensive about a new experience – like going to the doctor or starting school – talk to him/her about what to expect beforehand.

Tip 5: Teach your child patience by coming up with activities to do while you’re waiting, like singing a song or playing a quiet game.
