After seeing the movie Inside Out in the theater we knew it was one we would be running to Walmart to purchase for our movie collection. That time has come - the DVD is now available to purchase! Not only is the DVD available but so many great Inside Out toys from TOMY are showing up on the shelves at Walmart as well.  Love it and so do the kids.  Honestly, this movie is one of my favorites now.  The plot is perfect - it opens the world of emotions and hopefully teachers people of all ages why we have emotions and why it is okay to talk about those emotions - yes, even the hard ones like Fear, Sadness and Anger!

This is Jude.  He is so emotional and sensitive.  I personally love that about him.  It gives him character and empathy but those traits are also becoming difficult to deal with at times.  After seeing Inside Out, I started really thinking about the brain of Jude.  He is unbelievably smart but when something in life happens that is unplanned, hard or hurts him he is off track!  This has led to a lot of questions from Jude - "why does that boy make fun of me liking My Little Ponies" or "Why is it scary to do something new?"  To make it clear that we want him to discuss his feelings and emotions we are always up for hearing about his day at school and talking about his feelings.  I decided to create a worksheet for him to work on every day with us after dinner.  We all enjoy it!

This simple worksheet allows us to help Jude process his day and we get to hear all about his day too - good or bad.  I added a date to the worksheet so we could keep these sheets like a journal.  So simple but it has really helped us help Jude work though his emotions!

Inside Out has changed the way we look at outbursts and feelings we see in Jude. People of all ages but especially growing kiddos don’t quite know how to handle situations which in turn can led to some crazy emotions.

Every evening after dinner, we get out one of the "Today I Felt" worksheets and let Jude start thinking about his day.  Here is a secret - if your kids are like ours, every time we ask "how was your day?', we get the generic answer of "GOOD!!"  So frustrating!  ha!   Once we started using these worksheets we would hear all kinds of stories about the school day from Jude.  Good and bad.

Once the conversation begins it is pretty cathartic for us all.  Jude relates well to the characters in Inside Out.  He can easily define the different feelings with the characters which makes it so much easier for him to relate how he felt during the day to either Anger, Disgust, Fear, Joy or Sadness.

Jude tells us that having the little figurines during this exercise is helpful too because he can pick up the character he is relating too.  Pretty smart if you ask me.  Plus, this is a great little homework worksheet to get Jude writing more even after school.
