Mindful Breathing (or Star Breathing, pictured below) – Teaching children to become aware, or mindful, of their breathing is a life-long skill for calming the body and noticing emotions. Books Breathe Like a Bear* and Breathe With Me* help families do this in a variety of ways.
There’s nothing I love more than hearing parents gratitude about the change they are working to create! “For sure, this has been an improvement in my sleep. Most importantly, it has been a significant improvement in A’s sleep and behavior. He is getting more hours of sleep and he wakes up in a great mood. His growing independence around sleep is also reflected in other areas of his daily routine (getting dressed by himself and solving certain situations more independently).”
