Kids are ANXIOUS.

Kids are STRESSED.

Kids are ANGRY.

While there are certain kids who struggle more…

All kids will experience periods of stress, worry, anger, and anxiety.

And every child needs to learn how to cope with all these feelings in a healthy and safe way.

I, Janine Halloran, M.A., LMHC, have been working with kids, adolescents, and families for over 18 years.

And I know from my experience as a professional AND a mom…

…Calm doesn’t come easily for all kids.

Think about it. When you tell a child to “take a nice, deep breath and slow down” while they are in the middle of a meltdown or an anxiety attack, what happens?

They do the opposite!

And when the child throws a tantum, let’s face it…we can also get upset.

But wouldn’t it be great to give children the coping strategies and relaxation techniques they can use to self-regulate?

You can!

That’s why I’m inviting you to learn some of the best tips, techniques, and strategies that you can use immediately with kids that are having a hard time working with their emotions.

In this completely self-paced online course, I share hundreds of proven, self-regulation strategies that really work!

The methods are easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply.

  • Save time (and your sanity) and give these children the gift of self-regulation.
  • Help even the most challenging children you work with breakthrough — no more kicking, screaming, or throwing things.
  • Stop guessing! Arm yourself with strategies to calm the next child who has an emotional outburst in your classroom or office!

 

Because when you finally know how to respond to that child in crisis — everything will change.
