Helping an anxious child self-soothe is an important skill you can teach through language and interactions. This week we have been talking in our workshops about coaching children to learn how to calm their brains and bodies. Here are a few “We are Blooming” sentences that are part of the Cognitive Conversation you can have with the children, teens and young adults in your work or life. When children feel calm they are more competent, confident and ready to learn.


In 2017, Wendy Young and I shall be teaching more than 25 activities to enhance thinking, self-regulation, learning and behavior online for CE.  We shall teach you how to use many of the activities from Bloom, Musical Thinking and 70 Play Activities including, “What’s in it for me?” “The Purpose Circle” “The Love Notes” “Play Math” and more. Produced in easy to listen to videos with useful classroom handouts, this is an activity-filled webinar series designed to enliven and transform your work integrating current science, tools, and strategies. Sign-up to receive FREE activities and learn about upcoming events and webinars here.
