Have you ever felt stressed, angry or frustrated? Have you had a hard time managing those emotions? Chances are, you have and so have your children. In this video produced by the Parent Toolkit, you’ll find strategies to help you and your child calm down.

Stress Less - Calming Strategies 

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, reporting:

We've all been there. Frustrated, stressed, even angry. And sometimes, it's hard to keep your cool. But being able to manage emotions is important at all ages, and you can help your child develop that skill from an early age. Try blowing bubbles together. Taking deep breaths in, and slowly blowing out and making a bubble is a deep breathing technique that can lead to calm. And the next time there's a tantrum or meltdown approaching, tell your child to blow imaginary bubbles as a way to calm down. Deep breathing can be helpful as your kids grow. They can try counting to ten and taking deep breaths before responding to an upsetting text. They can also try taking a break from exam studying to exercise. Physical activity is another great way to manage stress. And don't forget, these strategies work for adults too!
