Children feel many different emotions every day, just like you. Make faces that mirror how your child seems to be feeling. Talk to them about why you’re making those faces. “You’re smiling and seem happy, and I am smiling and happy too”
See what your child is learning
When you imitate the face your child makes, you help them express what they think and feel even though they can’t speak yet. These conversations without words begin to help them learn about others’ feelings and emotions!
