Nervousness is an unpleasant emotion.

Controlling Our Emotions - Age 7-11

For the sake of their mental health it is important that children learn how to control their emotions. This PSHE quiz, written for children in years 3-6, will demonstrate some of the ways we can change negative emotions in us and in those around us.

Emotions are the way we feel. Some emotions feel nice and we can try and encourage these. Others can be less pleasant and we might try and avoid situations where these occur. Regardless of the emotion you experience, it is good to be aware of them and understand what causes them - but also to be aware of what can change them.

If you can take control of your emotions then you can feel bad less often and good more often. It is also good to be aware of how you can impact on other people's feelings.
