How do you feel when you’re scared? Does your heart pound? Does your tummy feel tight? Today, Count Vacula feels a tiny bit scared. But with some help from Scotty, plus a couple of heart-pounding songs, Vac (and you!) will learn to talk about how being scared feels in your body.
In this episode, we talk about feeling worried about the babysitter. Vac and Scotty talk about how being scared feels in your body, and about how talking about those feelings can help you feel better.
Practice discussing worried feelings with your child. Talk about something that makes you feel worried sometimes, and explain how it feels in your body. Then ask your child if they’d like to tell you about something that worries them… and how it makes them feel.
The Imagine Neighborhood is all about feelings, and if you'd like some more resources about ways to have these conversations, check out our friends beSproutable. They have a great blog post about other ways to understand, and deal with, big feelings around separation anxiety.
