Lil’ Sass: The Adventure of Anger Discussion Guide

Cape On, Moms, Dads and Caretakers!

Lil’ Sass is here to teach your kids about feeling their emotions all the way, and empowering them to do so with confidence. But she can’t do it alone! As you read through Sass’s adventures, please use the following questions to stimulate discussions with your kids about their emotions and their relationship to their emotions. I encourage you to be open by revealing some of the toughest emotions you’ve experienced in a way that your kids can understand. Then invite them to do the same, and be ready to hold space and support whatever comes up for them. Feeling and experiencing our emotions is a lifelong journey, and together, we can help point kids along the way. Remember what Mrs. Moo says; “Feeling emotions is our right as human beings!”
