I have been searching for a long time and trying to find a better way to teach my daughter about her emotions and how to express them. We have struggled for far too long with yelling, crying, fits of frustration and anger – only to find out that my daughter really cannot tell us why she is upset … she doesn’t know. This answer would frustrate me at first, until I realized that she was able to put a name to what she was feeling. She didn’t have any way to explain to us that she was very upset, or was becoming frustrated because she couldn’t get her zipper zipped. Her way of letting us know was by completely melting down – which was not working for anyone. Kimochis are different then anything I have ever seen. Yes, they are toy… but they are a toy with a definite purpose. They help kids learn about their emotions, and how to express and communicate them in a healthy and effective way. I have spent a ton of time checking out the Kimochis website, reading about the five Kimochis character, and getting some great tips from the parents section of the site. I love the tips that they offer for parents to help their children communicate more effectively, and the tips on how to handle certain emotionally charged situations between yourself and your child. They even give you good conversation starters to help your child work through difficult emotions. Plus, they have a teachers sections, and a game that you can play online with your child. It took me awhile to decide which of the Kimochis characters would be the best for Violet. She has many of the personality traits that are included in a few of the characters, but I eventually decided that she would connect best with Cat. Cat knows what she wants and sticks to her guns, just like my daughter. Cat can also be a little bossy, and because of this, disagreements can happen and feelings can get hurt. Cat always has a bandage to patch up those hurt feelings, and to let the healing begin! 3 feeling (Happy, Curious, and Cranky) come with Cat and we also received a mixed feelings pack with an additional 5 feelings, and a blank feeling that you can fill in with your child. After reading Cat’s personality description, I knew that she would be perfect for helping Violet figure out her own emotions. Cat is going to make a wonderful holiday gift for my daughter, and I am looking forward to using the tools provided on the website and the 48-page “Fell Guide” that comes with Cat to help Violet learn more about what she is feeling and how to deal with it. I am very hopeful that Cat will help both of us communicate better!
