Teaching children how to recognize, label and verbalize what they feel is an enormous gift to children, vital to growth from inside-out. Finding stories, songs and teaching moments helps a child understand what they feel and what another person might be feeling. It can ignite awareness of the universality of feelings, and creates a sensitive, aware and communicative whole being–inside and out. This ability to express what is felt helps to empower a child. An empowered child may be a less picked-on child, a child that can stand up for others because of their own confidence and inner awareness. A child who is emotionally empowered serves to be a voice against bullying and will not be part of by-stander silence. My songs and stories all have a connection to the world of feelings, and I look forward to bringing one of my concerts, workshops or Keynotes to your area, reinforcing your own teaching and offering fresh approaches for reaching children from inside-out.
