How Do You Feel, Teddy Bear?
„How Do You Feel, Teddy Bear?” is a game that lets you enter the child's world of emotions, while you have fun together!
It is also a very useful tool for every parent who wants to improve the communication with their child and to help the development of their child's emotional intelligence. Children experience all kinds of emotions, but they can't name them, can't cope with them. That's why it is important to help our children recognize their feelings, express them, differentiate the needs that hide behind them. To teach them that there are no good or bad emotions. To let them accept their feelings without evaluating, banning, ignoring. „How Do You Feel, Teddy Bear?” can help exactly for that.
It is “played” by a child and a parent, together. The child chooses a teddy bear face with emotion for a certain situation – there is no wrong answer, all combinations are possible. The final goal is to start a conversation. More ↓

Praise for „How Do You Feel, Teddy Bear?”:
“A very useful tool! My daughter, 3 years old, was very tense and nervous. I asked her if she wanted us to play togеther “How Do You Feel Teddy Bear?” She was choosing the Sad face for each situation, even for Teddy’s birthday. Because, she said, he has to be with some other people and not with his mommy. I realized she misses me and we went on a pastry house togеther and had fun. She was so calm and joyful afterwards!”, Petya Bozhinova
