As summer approaches I want to leave you with a few tools to help your child practice self-regulation at home. One way to help students learn this is through yoga, mindfulness, and guided relaxation. These activities can help students socially and emotionally with difficulties including: Anxiety, Anger, Depression, Focus/Concentration and Confidence.
Check out the links below to continue to practice these important skills with your child.
