Knowledge is Power. The T1D.Club has teamed up with JOYrific to help everyone integrate the whole brain while managing Type 1 Diabetes, a chronic auto immune disease. Life is an emotional journey that needs to be enjoyed. Emotional education is a powerful tool when managing the pressure and responsibility of an auto immune disease. This communication tool will help articulate powerful emotional challenges we face everyday.
The JOYrific Chart is a communication tool to help parents and children identify and express their emotions, feelings and attitudes. The goal is to express oneself appropriately in all types of circumstances. The chart’s principles are established for children as young as three years of age, as well as easily applied to tweens, teens, adults, parents, and grandparents. Life’s journey is filled with challenges. Everyone can learn to identify, control and appropriately display emotions, feelings and attitudes, in the good times and in the difficult time. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; life is about learning to dance in the rain!” The three simple guidelines run vertically through the middle of the chart reminding everyone to: Be Helpful. Be Kind. Avoid Whining. The middle row horizontally indicates “living in the middle.” Learning to spend the majority of time and energy in the middle is ideal: Be Kind. Visiting the high (JOYrific, Helpful, Excited) or visiting the low (Grumpy, Whining, and Temper Tantrum) are temporary places to “visit” but not to “live” indefinitely. Each person is responsible for his or her own indicator; no one can move anyone else’s indicator on the chart. Guided practice is important to build the vocabulary and understanding, which increases the ability to identify emotions, feelings and attitudes. All teaching takes place when living in the middle or visiting the high. Children are not listening when they are visiting the low. Avoid teaching when on the low because this is the time for action. Fostering the change process involves working on meeting needs, expectations, and providing appropriate attention or consequences.
