Expect the child to identify feelings of disgust in oneself and others. The child will be able to differentiate between “contaminated” thoughts and positive thoughts and will be able to manage these feelings accordingly.
Parental Play & Role
Do not label: Instead of saying “you are disgusting,” say “this habit is disgusting because…” and give a clear explanation about why you feel the habit is disgusting.
Help them process the emotion: Disgust can be an overwhelming emotion. Be sure to acknowledge the feeling and the causal factors behind feeling it.
Disgust can be expressed in an appealing manner. Try once.
Evolutionary benefit of disgust: It removes potentially dangerous or damaging things/people and keeps us away from safe and healthy surroundings/people. That’s why the feeling of disgust is necessary, although management of these emotions can make the child better adapted to their environment.
