Toddler Bedroom: Safe Place Breathing Icons
How to Use Safe Place Breathing Icons in the Toddler Bedroom
Active calming is an essential life skill, the key to the Power of Perception, and the prerequisite for self-regulation. The four core calming activities used in Conscious Discipline are S.T.A.R., Balloon, Pretzel and Drain.
Sophie’s mom and dad incorporate these calming techniques into their daily activities. Sophie also has a printout of the free downloadable poster from our Free Resources Toolkit posted as a helpful reminder in her room. The more we model, teach, post and practice these techniques with children, the more easily they will be able to access them during times of distress.
