Have a “Calm Box” for anger
Some children have a “short fuse” and get easily angry. They need a way to calm down. Have a small special box that you name, the “Calm Box.” When children are feeling like they may “lose it,” they get the box. The child opens the box and breathes out all the angry feelings, and breathes in calm relaxation. The child does this until he or she feels calm.
It’s a great strategy because it also teaches deep breathing, something that children can do as well as adults any time with or without a box.
Have a great day and weekend. You are a difference maker!
