Parents’ Guide to Inside Out

Inside Out is Pixar’s widely popular movie which focuses on emotions and family dynamics. This wondrous, funny, beautiful, and ground breaking film provides a unique view into how parents and children relate. Inside Out recently won a host of awards, including the Golden Globe and Annie Award for Best Animated Feature Film.

Inside Out navigates through the minds of Riley and her parents, as they experience five different emotions: anger, sadness, disgust, fear, and happiness. Since emotions can be a difficult subject to talk about, Dr. Ekman created this Parents’ Guide to spur conversation about how we feel, as we each can experience emotions differently. This parents’ guide also has a few tips that may help parents and children better understand themselves.
