Raising Calm Kids Mini Guide
You've likely noticed by now that your kids have plenty of BIG feelings that can result in category five meltdowns that rock the entire neighborhood.
And the thing is, sometimes we just don't know what to do.
We've all been there a time or two (or 55,000) when our kids are rolling around on the floor because you gave them a purple plate instead of a blue one.
And let me say, I wish I could show up on your doorstep with an adult beverage and a shoulder to cry on, but since I can't, I'll tell you some good news: Big emotions in kids are perfectly normal. In fact, it means your child is right on track developmentally.
And I know that telling you meltdowns and tantrums are normal likely isn't making you feel better, but here's the thing, you aren't helpless in the face of these BIG emotions.
You don't have to just grit your teeth and take it. You can get a jump start on minimizing big emotions all while protecting your child's self-esteem.
And this eBook is a great start. We've got 30 pages of calming strategies to help you learn how to prevent big emotions in your kids and also give you and your kids coping strategies for when big emotions DO strike.

For charts and cards I recommend printing on thick stock paper, so it's easier to hang, not as flimsy, and can handle some wear ‘n’ tear.
For worksheets, activities and guides, I recommend printing and keeping securely in a three ring binder. Easy Peasy.
If you've purchased a handy chart or set of cards, this isn't necessary, but boy oh boy, it sure skyrockets things to the next level of fun. Do you have a laminator? (If you don't have one, I like this one). Laminate your resources (amazing). We all know kids are hard on things, so now you won't have to keep printing your chart and cards every time they get a little beat up.
Many of our charts also use Velcro stickers. And this is the icing on the cake. Attach one side of the Velcro sticker to the task card, and one side to the chart. Ensure that you don't mix up the sides. (i.e., the "hook" side should be on the chart, and the "furry" side on the cards.) Now you can move the cards around at your leisure. (Plus it's SUPER fun for kids).
