Must my child be exactly 6 years to use the cards?
- We have age instructions on our cards, but not age limits. Children develop at different rates, which makes it difficult to determine what is right for your child. The instructions are set along ordinary themes that come at different ages. However, the theme "I" found in Emotion Cards 1 is as relevant as 3 years old, 8 years old and 36 years old. There is no upper age limit for emotional consciousness.
Aren't these topics a little advanced for a child this age?
- The emotions that are reproduced can be both known and unknown to a younger child. By reflecting on a feeling with an adult, the child learns to identify them once they show up. Although a feeling can be unknown to a young child, they are still there. However, all children are different, and it is you as an adult who determines what is suitable for your child. If a card does not seem appropriate right now, it is simply put aside for so long.

Together with Licensed Psychologist and psychotherapist Ida Welbourn, Emotion Cards 2 is aimed at young and old alike who are thinking about emotions in a social context.
Many situations in preschool and school put great pressure on children to understand and be able to handle their own and others' feelings.
Young people are put into situations where it is important to be able to reflect on the reactions of others and manage their own complex feelings such as envy, guilt, or bravery. It may not always be easy to tell your adult how those emotions feel.
When you help your child reflect and find the words in complicated situations, you give your child tools to face them on their own. By talking and listening yourself, you show a good, empathetic example for your child.
You can choose a card that feels relevant to you today, or as an adult you can suggest a card or a situation. Listen to where your child is at today and let the conversation take the path that feels natural.

“We have never received an answer to a direct question about how it was in school here at home. What I thought was just high integrity turned out to be a difficulty finding the words. The cards have really helped us to be able to talk about things in a dramatized way we didn't even know our son was thinking about. Big thanks from us! ”
“It is sooo exciting to hear what the boys have to say about the different feelings. I can also notice that it has become easier to pick up certain topics when we become used to talking about them together. Something that has previously felt a little complicated has all of a suddenly become so simple. Love the nice pictures! ”
“We love the emotion cards! My children (8 and 10) often want us to sit down with them in the evening or together on the sofa when we are free in the middle of the day. They give many clever thinkers who strengthen the emotional competence, and I as a parent get help with the imagination. Thank you for a concrete tool that helps us talk about things we might not have thought of otherwise. Both me and the children also appreciate that you write "adults" instead of "parents" or "mom and dad". Thanks for the cozy and insightful moments with my little philosophers! ”
