We don't get to choose what life throws at us, however we get to choose how to react to it.
As a adults we can realize what serves us, and what energy we want around us. Sometimes for kids, its a lot harder to deal with emotions. One thing I know, is I feel best when I can react with all my best qualities, and I'm sure you do to.
I have created a free PDF for you kids to draw them as a SUPER HERO. Once they have drawn it up, you can talk to them about how that super hero makes them feel. Even give it a name. Then when a scary, unknown, discomfort time appears for you child. You can reference that super hero, maybe it will help them to deal with a not so fun situation, with a better choice of a reaction.
It is a good exercise for you too! You can tag us @thederrcompany for your kids drawings and we will pick someone to receive free store credit!
Do something kind!
