Guilt – one of the most common but least understood emotions. In the overall scheme of emotions, guilt is in the general category of negative feeling states. It’s one of the “sad” emotions, which also include agony, grief, and loneliness. Often neglected when it comes to writing at the primary level, teach your child some useful descriptions for guilt to help add some complexity to his writing, and trust me, his teacher will reward him generously for that.
