teach your kids to deal with feelings

Feelings are real and something we feel.
What matters the most is the way that we deal™.

Poffer and the poff's will guide children of all ages toward

positive behavior by developing emotional literacy skills (EQ)

(pre-k -early teen)

meltdowns, temper tantrums, time outs, yelling…. sound familiar?

Children behave because of the way they feel. Turn tantrums into teachable moments with pff.

Feelings come first.

Just because you say, "don't be" doesn't mean they "won't be".


pff is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

In 3 simple steps, pff will give children the ability to:

1. Learn

Identify and define their feelings

2. Grow

Understand how feelings cause them to behave

3. Change

Learn to express their feelings in a positive manner

Here are the benefits...

  1. Better Behavior: understanding how feelings affect behavior is the first step to changing it!

  2. Improved Friendships: understanding one's feelings promotes empathy.

  3. School Readiness: emotional literacy smoothes the transition between home to school.

  4. Academic Achievement: the average student enrolled in a social-emotional learning program ranks 10 percentile points higher on achievement tests than students who do not participate in such programs.

  5. Emotional Literacy: children who learn to identify and deal positively with their feelings are empowered to make better choices.

Preparing children emotionally is quite possibly one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids for a happy and successful life!

Don't Just Take Our Word for It

Just like reading literacy, emotional literacy is a key element to a child's overall success. Pff is an effective and unique approach that will teach children the abc's of their emotions and improve behavior as a result!

      Currently I have mostly toddler and preschool age children in my care. I am, utilizing the pff program in helping the children, learn their colors, and put words to the emotions we are all experiencing. I have incorporated the program into my monthly lessons and we add the emotion to the colors we are learning. The parents are also working with the kids and stating that it actually helps curb emotional break downs. The program is absolutely wonderful!
