In this episode of Gutsy Health, we have the chance to talk with Morgan Thomas, a preschool teacher of 11 years. Morgan has started a preschool that not only teaches academia but also emotional education. She has found that emotional habits, good or bad, can start being learned at the young preschool age. If not treated seriously, it can create habits very difficult to overcome later. We also talk about the school system and what needs to change, how to talk and be open with your kids, understanding children’s emotions, and how the environment we create can be affecting our kids. Generally speaking, we live in a nonstop environment that often is teaching kids to never slow down. Join us in this episode as we learn what we need to help our children grow emotionally.
