During this uneasy time, our primary goal is: Keeping Kids Connected. Research shows us that social connection is the most powerful antidote to stress and anxiety. We are committed to helping bring positivity, fun, and friendship to kids around the globe.
In order for a child to build positive relationships, they must learn to regulate their emotions. When we empower children with a toolkit of strategies, they start to feel a little more in control when big feelings cloud over.
According to the UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Centre, “mindful breathing builds resilience to stress, anxiety, and anger.” The simple strategy of focusing attention on the breath allows the body and mind to find a sense of calm.
This activity, designed for our littlest Friendship Ninjas, helps children calm down when they are feeling overwhelmed.
