The “Coffret du loup” can help teach how to understand emotions. It’s not always easy in a society where stress affects us earlier and earlier in life and where parents and children can’t always find the right words or the right time to express how they feel. The guide, emotion wheel and the little wolf figurines can serve as a fun and pertinent “feelings translator”, so that you can take on the New Year together, and better understood.
