Exploring emotions

Exploring emotions. Big son's feelings around losing his hamster

Today, I was very grateful to my big son. He surprised me by being more than willing to try out my idea for transforming emotions. We used the process I had stumbled upon last Thursday, drawing round the head twice and filling one with bad feelings about a situation or event and the other with the desired feelings. Big boy chose to fill his two heads with emotions around losing his beloved Boris Well Hamster and delighted me by talking happily to camera about the process, explaining how he felt (left), and would like to feel (right) so very articulately and I was blown away by what he created.

“There is some darkness there because everybody has that and I don’t want to be perfect.” he said. Moments like this make me feel so proud of my son.
