Emotional ABCs

Emotional ABC's, $85

Ages: 4 - 8

Emotional ABC's teaches children basic emotional regulation skills. This product shows children how to "pause and breathe" to help them figure out what they're feeling; how to "rewind" so they can discover what happened to get them to the feeling they're experiencing; and finally to "play" to help them make a choice that can transition them to a calm place. Giving your child these easy to learn skills can lead to a lifetime of better choices.
