How They Work
Deep breathing will slow your child’s heart rate when they’re upset. It not only helps them to calm down in the moment, but teaches them how to regulate their emotions and avoid future meltdowns.
Teaching your child how to utilize their breath to calm down is an incredibly helpful tool. The calm down cards incorporate both breathing and full-body activities with imagery that children can relate to.
The cards also offer a tangible reminder and distraction. Your child will love being able to choose their favorite card to use. Allowing them to make a choice will help them regain a sense of control.
What You Get
The Calm Down Cards are a set of 12 custom cards. Each has a unique breathing activity with a hand-drawn picture on the front and simple instructions on the back.
They also come with a parent guide to direct you how to best use them and other tips to help you help your child work through their emotions.
