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.
Our team consists of:
- Joana Castelhano, family doctor;
