Our Target: We’re trying to pay more attention to our kids’ energy levels to make sure they are calm in public places where they need to be calm. We will also look at calming down after getting hurt. Let’s take a deep breath and get started!
Aim: Calming Down
Team Up! Try these simple ideas to help your child want to talk.
Find a time when your kids are calm at home and then you make a scene. Run into the room and start jumping up and down, yelling, waving your arms, and just going nuts. Really make your kids look at you funny. Once you have their attention, stop and ask them if they would like for you to act like that around them in public. Let them know that there are times and places to be excited but then you have to settle down and be calm in other places.
