These have certainly been trying times, and ones where we would expect more anxious feelings. Simply telling children (or ourselves for that matter) to “calm down” or “tough it out” or that they are “okay”, is not effective in truly helping children feel calm. In this workshop we will explore why it is important for young children to get to calm, why they need our help in getting there and what we can do specifically to help bring them to that calm state. We will explore a number of practical strategies. We will highlight things that are not helpful in the moment, and tangible things that help children grow into managing anxious feelings over time and development.
