One activity to teach self-regulation

Regulation, Parenting Resource, Parenting Help, Teaching Self-Regulation
By Kimber Graves, TBRI® Practitioner

This simple exercise is one of the primary ways you can help your children and your family understand and adjust their emotions and behavior.

This exercise and unique tool can help you have conversations with your children about how they are feeling and explore ways to help them adjust their emotions and actions.  We encourage families to make an engine plate and put the resources on the fridge or somewhere visible to deepen the concept and heighten the opportunity for use and impact.  It is best to talk about how your own body is running first and how you make adjustments to feel calm.  This helps your children understand that the tool is not just for them but benefits you as well.
