In this article we focus on children of fifth grade of primary school and how they manage their emotions and feelings in order to improve their social relationships. We conducted a contextual study in order to identify how children interact and discover their social relationships problems. We identify the user profile and propose an interactive storytelling to improve emotional competences and feelings in children. We show a role play story using first-person interaction, and a well-adapted narrative to our users.
