What Am I Feeling?

by John Gottman, Ph.D.
and the Talaris Research Institute

Everything we do and everything we learn is based in some way on how we feel.

How we feel about our emotions—whether we value those emotions and how we cope—shapes how we nurture children.

Adapted from John Gottman’s Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child, this book helps adults identify their parenting and caregiving style. It explains the five important steps in “emotion coaching” children, to ensure that children are guided to healthy emotional growth.

Kids who can accept and share their emotions do better in many ways, Gottman’s research shows:

  • They form stronger friendships;
  • They achieve more in school;
  • They bounce back from emotional crises more quickly; and
  • They are physically healthier.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs of parents and children.

Psychologist John Gottman has studied marriage, couples, and family relationships for more than 30 years. He is the author or coauthor of more than three dozen books
