Emotions matter. Emotions influence our decision making and color our relationships. Research shows that children who develop emotional intelligence skills are kinder, happier, healthier, and more successful. Help your child develop emotional intelligence by playing another round of our feeling words game.

Conversation starters:

  • Ask your child to remember a time they felt jealous. How did jealousy feel in their body? Where did they feel it most?
  • Ask your child to think about a situation where they observed someone acting jealous. How could they tell that the person was jealous? What could that person have done to feel better?


Have your child look in the mirror and practice talking about a time they felt jealous. Ask your child: how could you share your feelings of jealousy in a way that someone is likely to listen to and understand?


Have your child draw a picture of a time when they felt jealous. Ask them to add something to the picture that would have helped them feel better. (It could be another person, a thought bubble, something they needed to say.)
