Managing one’s own emotions and reading the emotions of others are critical social skills. The capacity to handle emotions during times of stress, sadness and agony; the ability to empathize with others to create engagement is how we develop within ourselves and in our relationships. Emotional development underscores the growth process from childhood to adulthood, from dependency to independence. Middle school is a time of extreme insecurity and experiencing new and diverse feelings. Each day is unpredictable. Coming to terms with one’s own and peers’ emotions is a first step in childhood development. If a child is unable to come to terms with emotions or empathize with others, it can take a toll on mental health and affect social factors such as maturity, relationships, and even everyday schooling. This project was created to help assess daily occurrences and the emotions that go along with them.
