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.
