This set of 12 cards has a variety of fun activities that act as visual aids for your child in their journey towards self-regulation. Children have BIG feelings and we understand this is part of growing up, we believe it’s important to support your child through these feelings and give them tools to self-regulate and help them become a resilient young adult.
What we love about this set of hand-illustrated cards is they are so versatile in the way they can be used. Try placing them in a calm down corner or bring them out and use them as a learning tool. Spend time reading over the cards together and practice each technique, you will find your child will instinctually begin to reference an exercise when you give them the tools to be mindful of their current mood.
You probably already know this but, breathing activities are scientifically proven to reduce stress levels and mindfulness brings your child's attention to the present. There is an easier way to deal with tantrums and meltdowns.
You will find these exercises can help reduce tantrums and meltdowns by gently guiding your little one towards a calmer state of mind.
