Dharma For Kids, The Struggle Is Real

The Struggle Is Real

Two PhD psychology students have started putting out a sweet series of YouTube videos. In episode 3 they talk about emotions that could be a good springboard into a conversation about emotions with kids. The episode also includes useful “homework” activities designed to get in touch with your emotions and your own emotional “thermometer”.

The series is generally about psychology and advocates for mental health to reduce stigma that typically surrounds mental health problems. We like the series as it is positive and can stimulate conversation about emotions. The series is also available here as a free podcast:
