Tips for Caregivers!

Parent/Caregiver tip for parenting the strong-willed child.  Don’t forget to breathe, deep breaths calm our stress response systems and help to co-regulate.  Try the “deep-dive” breath:  This is a kundalini yoga breath practice and visualization.  Inhale for four counts, hold for four, and exhale slowly for four counts.  You can increase the holding of breath by a few seconds once you find the rhythm of the exercise.  As you rhythmically find this breath, each time you inhale imagine diving deeper into a pool of blue water.  As you complete your last breath and exhale, imagine yourself floating to the surface, renewed and ready.
