Let it Go
If you loved Arohas Way you will LOVE the new children's picture book called 'Let it Go'.
Join Aroha and her friends as they navigate their way through emotions; sadness, anger, shame and fear. Throughout the book, Aroha and her friends each experience an emotion, and find a unique way to release that energy from their body.
The Latin derivative for the word emotion, 'emotere,' literally means energy in motion.
'Let it Go' encourages children to explore what emotions feel like in their bodies and how we can discover techniques to allow the emotions to dissipate in a healthy way that works for each child. In the book, you will notice a golden line of energy moving throughout the pages. This represents the energy in motion or the emotion as it starts and ends with each child.
Aroha and her friends are again showing children they are not alone in feeling uncomfortable emotions and empowering them with strategies to manage those feelings when they arise. In the back of the book, there are extra notes in the hope that it will again open up conversations between adults and children. Learning to label emotions, recognise how they feel in the body and ways we can allow those emotions to be let go are all valuable tools for our tamariki.

Never underestimate the power positive praise can have on a child. Giving positive praise to our children helps to reinforce behaviours, builds self confidence and self-esteem. When you praise your child, you are showing them how they can see themselves in a positive light, helping them to recognise when they have done well.
