This week Mike and Sarah talked with author Eliza Huie about her new book, Count Yourself Calm: Taking Big Feelings to a Big God.
Teach children a calming activity that focuses their attention on God and helps them manage their emotions.
This beautifully illustrated and empathetically written book walks children through a calming activity that focuses their attention on God and helps them manage their emotions.
Through a combination of slow breathing, prayer, and focusing on five things about God and his good gifts, children will learn to count themselves calm. Children can practise this calming activity while you read them the book and then use it when they feel upset, sad, angry, worried, anxious, or scared.
This resource is a great tool to equip children 4-7 years old to regulate their emotions and calm down.
