Young children struggle with expressing emotions in healthy and sustainable ways, and if punished too often or severely, children will slowly learn and develop to hide their emotions, which is also extremely unhealthy as those emotions bottle up overtime and eventually lead to blowing the cap off and having panic attacks, or melt downs, and can cause severe mental trauma and effect a person on deep, and daily levels, eventually taking away from someone's success. Now, any parent would want their child to be successful, but don't often think about and explore how to express emotions in a healthy way. However, you can use this adorable reversible octopus plush toy, to teach your young children how to express themselves in a healthy way, and set them up for future success.
For most children, the first relationship that they develop (outside of immediate family, such as mothers and fathers) is not with babysitters, teachers, or pets, but with a stuffed animal. Stuffed animals are known to provide children with companionship, comfort, and can be very agreeable partners in crime, or great scapegoats when it comes to who made a mess in the living room. Stuffed animals are great listeners, encouragers, and sometimes even teachers!
Stuffed animals are so much more than just toys to children, young kids idolize and protect them because of the security and comfort they provide. Stuffed animals are in fact, building a person's first relationship! That's why it is important to provide children with such toys as anyone over the age of 12 would call it, to start teaching them a sense of relationship, and to express themselves through the toys. That’s exactly why the reversible octopus plush is a perfect stuffed animal toy for your young kids! Through the cute and soft look and feel of the stuffed octopus, children gain an attachment of comfort and safety to them.
Now that your kid is in love with his/her new and first best friend, the child will want to take it everywhere and for anything. Now you can teach your child about reversing the octopus plush toy inside out and explaining the two sides to its moods. With a quick explanation of the sad and pouty face, linking the use and appearance of that side/face to something sad or upsetting.
