“What to say and who to talk to when we have feelings that are too big to manage on our own, and how to listen and help if one of our friends is finding things difficult. Sometimes, it’s just a simple conversation that can make things better,” Middleton adds.
The animated film (below) will be distributed to elementary schools throughout the U.K. in an effort to help children talk about their feelings. “As parents, we all want our children to have the best possible start in life. Encouraging children to understand and be open about their feelings can give them the skills to cope with the ups and downs that life will throw at them as they grow up,” Middleton said in a statement, according to People.
“It’s important that our children understand that emotions are normal and that they have the confidence to ask for help if they are struggling,” she continued. Watch the film above.
