Calming Spaces: An Alternative to Time Out

Speaker: Tracy Schwartz | Organization: Indian Prairie School District 204

Description: Part of growing up is experiencing different feelings of frustration and emotions and learning how to handle them in ways that don't hurt ourselves or others. This session will provide parents and caregivers with a better way to help our kids manage those big emotions in a safe and meaningful way at home. Participants will receive a Calming Space box of tools for their family and instructions on how to create a calming space with these tools at home.
