Calming Coping Skills

I want to help you become a Big-Hearted Champion for your kids.

When you're about to lose your cool with your children, remember to do a 1-2-3 Yelling Break.

I'm showing you step-by-step how to do the calming coping skills that I outlined in Chapter 3 of "Big-Hearted Parenting" during your 1-2-3 Yelling Breaks with the following video tutorials.

Once you're done watching these videos - come back soon! I'll be sharing more calming coping skills videos in the near future. 

BOX BREATHING

Count 1-2-3-4 repeatedly while you breathe in, hold your breath for a count of 4, breathe out for 4 and then let your breath out for 4. Repeating these steps 12 times allows you do this for 3 minutes in total. 

4-7-8 BREATHING

Breathe in four 4 counts, hold your breath for 7 counts, and breathe out for 8 counts. Repeat these steps at least 4 times.
