What if, instead of saying, "Do as I say or else," you said, "Hey, kiddo, I know you're upset right now, but our magic calm down card says we must flutter like butterflies to the car."
Which do you think will heed a more positive reaction?
Your child will forget all about the end of the world event transpiring and refocus on this fun new challenge.
Here's the thing:
Distraction is powerful.
It's so powerful because young kids ARE NOT reasonable. I see you nodding along. In fact, I'd dare say they are some of the most UNREASONABLE people in the world. But it's not their fault; their brains aren't fully grown yet, and at certain ages, they simply CAN NOT calm down or reason.
That is why distraction is your best friend.
And that's why these calm-down cards are so amazing. This is powerful play therapy that sprinkles fun and learning in to help your angry, anxious, or upset child feel more in control each and every day.
Break the tension of ANY stressful moment with any of these 40 quick distraction cards.
