“Don’t Get So Upset!”: Help Young Children Manage Their Feelings by Understanding Your Own

“Don’t Get So Upset!” examines the uncomfortable emotions providers feel and the inappropriate ways they may respond—when children exhibit strong feelings, especially anger, fear, and grief. The book challenges teachers to reflect on their own emotional histories and to find strategies for responding to children in ways that support children’s emotional health and development.
