    Default Would love some ideas

    Hi all, I have a lovely little 2.5yr old mindee who is going through a (quite typical) phase of snatching toys from others, struggling to share, whining a bit instead of asking nicely, and being a little resistant to boundaries. I don't particularly struggle with it myself, as she has a lovely personality and I feel I've dealt with it enough times to know what systems to have in place to deal with it this time around! However, I'm just doing a little planning for activities- can anyone recommend some activities or games that they feel have really helped to develop a very young child's PSED with regard to relationships, feelings and behaviour? Thank you

    Our teddies / dolls very often role play the problems we see between children - and we model ways of dealing with things without upsetting others... it's all part of developing emotional awareness and resilience which as we know comes with time and patience but like you say a few activities thrown in can help children be more aware of how their behaviour is affecting others x
