INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The kit allows children to learn to control the intensity of their emotions in order to live well in society. Managing your emotions well is something that can be learned just like riding a bicycle or even conjugation. This tool makes it easier to support children to help them find ways to get there. Thus, the child will be able to identify unpleasant emotions and ventilate them in a positive way.
Tips for using the Cool Down Kit to its full potential
- When the child is very young, it is sometimes necessary to stay with him in the corner so that he stays there until calm has returned. It is important that he understands that he will have to stay in the background until he has regained his composure. In time, he will be able to stay there without the presence of an adult and he may even end up going there by himself.
- Try to always present the corner as something positive and not as a negative consequence. It is not the feeling of anger that is the problem, but the inappropriate gesture that accompanies it, such as shouting, insulting or even breaking something. For this kind of behavior, invite the child to make a gesture of reparation.
- Lead by example and use the cool-down corner when you feel angry, too. This will avoid stigmatizing the child and will make him aware that everyone experiences emotions, even adults.
- Over time, if the pencil case loses its appeal, invite the child to personalize it. Let him add things that help him calm down (puzzles, legos, sensory objects).
