Children can take responsibility for their actions, to feel good about their achievements and understand that their feelings and behaviour are linked. Also pupils know that it is acceptable to have certain feelings and emotions. Managing feelings – Children can become more able to manage their feelings, using strategies to think first before using inappropriate actions. Enabling them to understand what feelings affect others and how to use them appropriately so not to hurt others. Children will learn how to calm themselves, managing anger and aggressive feelings.
However, they may also be able to learn to behave in a way in which they can communicate. Being able to communicate effectively promotes self esteem and confidence. Social – speech, language and communication skills help children to make friends and respond to each other. Without language, the ability to make and maintain these friendships can be affected. Some children may become withdrawn.
