Feelings with Milo is an emotional literacy App that teaches kids about feelings. The app strives to help children understand and, in the context of supportive relationships, learn to manage their emotions.
This simple, fun App provides the opportunity for parents and therapists to explore emotions and demonstrate that feelings, however powerful, come and go.
Here is a demo video: http://youtu.be/OjBxdZF05co
Children identify the image of Milo that best represents what they are feeling. This allows them to see that their feelings are normal.
The Feelings Train then shows children how their emotions change over time, and provides parents and therapists with an easy way to keep a record of the context for each reported feeling.
Studies show that children do much better when they are able to identify their feelings. Becoming aware of feelings is an important step in self discovery, self regulation and understanding of oneself and others.
“a good part of the effectiveness of [social emotional literacy] came from its impact in shaping children’s developing neural circuitry, particularly the executive functions of the prefrontal cortex, which manage working memory – what we hold in mind as we learn – and inhibit disruptive emotional impulses.” --Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.

This app is very well set up, and easy to use.
I am trying to unlock and purchase additional emotions, however, even though I answer the math problem correctly, it says I'm not authorized to make a purchase. It doesn't ask for my iTunes password, but it won't let me make the purchase. Please fix. I need more emotions Available.
This app makes thinking and talking about feelings easy and fun. It also encourages reflection on the past and helps highlight trends. I really like how simple and fast it is.
This is a creative non-threatening way for little ones to express their emotional states. To get the full range of possibilities you have purchase an expanded set, but it's only $1.99. Simple to use.
Really love how cute Milo the mouse is and how his facial expressions help kids identify feelings. Using this to help start conversations each day after school with my sons about how their day at school was.
Clever use of the train cars to show how feelings change. A great way for youngsters to learn how to communicate their feelings. Good Job!
Simple, but effective. A great tool!
Every one needs this its perfect
Long time coming! So glad this is out and is effective AND fun for my littlest. :-)
