Happy Tuesday everyone!

Today, we would like to bring you a game that parents and children can play together at home, and we wish you all a smooth, healthy, and good day of the week.

As you may already aware, children often experience just as many complex emotions as adults do. They can feel excited, nervous, sad, scared, worried, embarrassed, angry and so many more feelings. These emotions can often be overwhelming, especially if a child doesn’t know how to express themselves in a healthy way.

However, with a little bit of practice, patience, empathy and support, children can learn to vocalise their feelings which has many benefits to cognitive development and wellbeing. There are a variety of different tools families can use to help with vocalisation of emotions. So today, House of Knowledge brings you a board game that parents and their children can play during spare time.

Playing games like this as a family in a safe and supportive environment will benefit your child and your family in many ways, such as supporting cognitive development as well as handling emotions, wellbeing and the knowledge of inner self.

Children often learn behaviours and habits from parents, so seeing their parents express their genuine feelings allows the child to understand they can vocalise their emotions.

The child can not only become more confident and learn to express their opinions and emotions but can also form a deeper understanding of themselves while increasing their resilience and developing good mental health strategies and strong mind-set.

Let’s review some instructions below and click the video together to start the game!
