  • each day of activity takes between 10 minutes and 1 hour to complete;
  • families can access the content on our site and follow the programme flexibly and at their own pace;

Familias have 97% satisfaction with our programme. Here is one testimonial from a mother and neuropaediatrician:

My 5-year old daughter had difficulty in expressing her emotions. Now she changed behaviour: instead of exploding or crying, she says 'I think I am having an emotion' or 'I feel sad.' The nursery school teacher told me that she seems a different child. And this was in part thanks to Bulgy.

~ Susana R., neuropaediatrician and mother

Main messages of each episode

Here are the messages from each of the first 6 episodes, based on science. Each episode has a story and a song around its message so children remember it well.

  1. emotions are like waves; they come and go and we cannot stop them
  2. emotions are important because they affect our entire life
  3. emotions are caused by facts or thoughts
  4. if you have an emotion, then something is important for you
  5. the only way not be drowned by emotions is to pay attention to them
  6. giving emotions a name is the first step to surf them
