If you experience your child feeling overly worried, anxious or needs help with coping with strong emotions you can instruct them through all or some of the exercises below.
These exercises can be done standing, sitting or laying down. Ask your child to close their eyes, and let the rest of their body go limp and floppy.
Do they have a favourite animal? Get them to imagine they are that animal.
With time and practise your child can become expert enough to do all or some of these exercises by themselves. Giving them a toolkit whenever they need it.
