Children need ongoing exposure for greater awareness and understanding of themselves and the complex world in which they live—as well as explanations and practice throughout the day—to manage their emotions, navigate social situations, and reduce anxiety.
Over 200 updated simple and easy-to-understand activities show you the teachable moments to use throughout your daily routines with your child.
Getting ready for the day, preparing and eating meals together, reading time, going to the doctor, celebrating holidays, and partnering with your child’s school become opportunities for discovery and practice of expected social behavior.
These social and emotional skills activities, including new mindfulness practices and a new section on bridging home and school, are invaluable for busy or overwhelmed parents. When you have the tools you need to help your child, you can both become more calm, confident, and connected.
