“Practicing Self-Calming Skills”

       It’s that time of year again… the perfect time to practice our self calming skills… With each night falling earlier, and Halloween decorations like jack-o-lanterns, spiders, and skeletons, it can be a scary time of year for little ones.  It’s important to teach self-calming skills so children can reassure themselves amidst all the excitement and change.

     A child may find comfort in a stuffed toy, a ‘lovey’ blanket, a song or memory or thought, taking a deep breath, a hug from Mom or Dad, a favorite activity, going outside…

     Please send your child to school ready to share, or demonstrate how they find comfort and calm.  Maybe another child finds reassurance in the same way, so feelings are validated and relationships are strengthened in this EQ (Social Emotional Learning, or “SEL”) opportunity.
