When a child is dysregulated and their brain is emotionally flooded, it is important to remember to not overload them with questions or demands. Having a range of technique techniques as part of your Calm down kit will allow you to support your child when their emotions take over their bodies. It takes a lot of practise for kids to learn these skills, so use these cards as a visual prompt to help children understand the technique.
Each set comes with a card for the “Grown ups” to help them know how to support their children when they are experiencing big emotions and teach them through co-regulation how they can calm their own brains. Have fun brain builders!
Calm down cards include:
