“First my little brother took my shells and wouldn’t give them back.”
I asked, “How did you feel?” the 6 yr. old shared she felt “MAD!”
When I asked what choice she made, she answered confidently, “I sang the CALM SONG you taught us and then when he hit me I sang the CALM SONG and didn’t hit him back. Then he stopped hitting me.”
I asked her how she felt about her choice. She said, “I felt good and took deep breaths, too.”
I complimented her on making a good choice. She smiled and her eyes twinkled. EMPOWERING SUPERKIDS! It changes the course in life. And changes what is possible in the world!
CALMING, CALMING, I’M CALMING MYSELF.
BREATHING SLOWLY, I’M CALMING MYSELF.
