Social Emotional

If you or your child are feeling stressed or upset try this wonderful calming technique. Pretend to hold a flower in your hand now inhale deeply through your nose smelling your flower. Exhale slowly through your mouth. Do this several times. Be creative and ask your child what their flower smells like or what it looks like. Maybe your flower is a dandelion and when you exhale you are blowing the seeds everywhere.
