Can your children handle special occasions? Of course they can, with the help of a mindful mantra!
Inspired by the stress Christmas can bring, but not wanting to tie the book down to just one holiday, Laurie Wright wrote ‘I Can Handle Special Occasions’ to help children realize that those BIG emotions that come along with special days are okay, and don’t have to take over!
Opening presents – overwhelming
Waiting for a special day to FINALLY come – the worst
Eating different food – stressful
Seeing unknown people in costumes – SCARY!
Hearing loud noises like fireworks – EEK!
Kids can handle watching others open presents, a crowd of people at their houses and they can even handle eating unfamiliar food! Chances are, whatever a special occasion has to throw at kids, they can handle it, with a little bit of coaching from you. Help your child or students handle the range of emotions that accompany special occasions, and provide a coping tool to last their lifetimes. Emotions are tricky and hard to handle when you’re small, and kids need our help! Mindful Mantras equip children with a necessary skill in order to cope with worries that arise during special occasions.
