When we are able to self-regulate, we can calm ourselves down and cope with strong emotions on our own. When your child becomes upset or begins to act out, it may be because they do not have the skills to manage or express their emotions. This is especially true during times of stress. Learning to regulate strong emotions is challenging for all of us, especially children.
These Calming Kits include interactive and independent activities. Depending on your child’s needs, you can focus on building self-regulation skills or focus on calming activities during stressful times. Or you can do both!
- Self Regulation - Choose this kit to promote self-regulation skills and identifying emotions, as well as coping and calming skills.
- Stress - Choose this kit if your child is sensitive to stressful situations and needs help coping with strong emotions through calming techniques.
