Three Little Pigs and Take Some Deep Breaths Child: How I've been teaching deep breathing to my toddler

I've worked with kids 5 years old and up and like to teach them deep breathing when they're especially hyper or have trouble with anger. It's not too hard to teach once they're pretty verbal and usually they are eager to please so they'll go along with it.

a blog post about how I'm attempting to teach my toddler to take deep breathsSo imagine my frustration when I discover my 2 year old NEEDS this skill, but he's not really able to grasp the idea or follow my instructions very well yet. He is an intense child... he plays hard, cries hard, and loves hard. He's such a great kid, but I really need to help him learn to manage his intensity levels a bit better... I think I was a lot like this as a kid (and still am now sometimes), but learning how to calm myself down has been an awesome skill to have. I want him to have that and I want him to grow up with it- not learn it when he's 20 years old. So I was trying to figure out a good way to incorporate the skill via silly play in hopes the big breaths would help him calm down. I don't think it's a perfect win, but this seemed to do the trick...
