Why is emotional development important with children?

Community Art Counsellor and Occupational Therapist, Sarah Allen, explains the importance of emotional development for children.

Emotional development is vital in helping children grow into well adjusted adults. Being able to identify different feelings, express them (through words/pictures) and process the difficult emotions enables children to be healthy emotionally and psychologically.
Helping children find their voice and being able to have a conversation about how they are feeling with a safe adult means that they will feel happier, safer and more confident.
