Tips for Calming Children

posted in: Home Page News | 0
  • Give your child a lot of physical contact, such as hugging them or holding hands with younger children.
  • Make sure that your child has plenty of quiet on-on-one time with you.
  • Limit noise and clutter.  Both can distract children and make it hard for them to concentrate.
  • Give children something to do with their hands, such as playing with Plasticine, a fidget toy or a string of beads.
  • Teach children the benefits of taking deep breaths to relax
  • Encourage them to do physical activity (for example, run, skip, jump) when they are restless or can’t sit still.
