Temper Tantrums can be frustrating for any parent. The core skill that will help you through a temper tantrum is keeping your cool. Next, treat them as opportunities to teach a new skill. Learning to deal with frustration is a skill that children gain over time. If your child struggles with loss of self-control when the world doesn’t go his/her way please take a few minutes to watch this short 7 minute video to learn a new technique.
The first step in any discipline encounter is to take a deep, calming breath. Three deep breaths shut off the fight or flight response in the body. This will give your brain the oxygen it needs to make a safe choice. If you are upset when entering into an upset situation with your child you will not be able to make an impact on their behavior. This active calming technique is an essential component of emotional health. Teach children to S.T.A.R.: Smile, Take a deep breath And Relax. S.T.A.R. is one of four core breathing techniques in Conscious Discipline. The other techniques are Drain, Balloon and Pretzel. Download and print free icons for all four in our Resources section of the Conscious Discipline website (https://consciousdiscipline.com/free-resources).
As always, We Wish You Well!

The We Care Basket provides a way to express caring and empathy for others. Practicing using the “We Care Basket” teaches your child the skill of empathy. Watch this short video and consider taking a We Care Basket outside with you to soothe boo-boos. The basket is filled with things like minor first aid items (Band-Aids, wet wipes, hand sanitizer), card-making supplies (paper, crayons, sentence starters), and a stuffed animal for cuddling.
We wish you well,
Sierra Greenwood and Chris Krause
