While early education creates an important foundation for academic skills, many parents would be surprised to know that social skills are actually far more predictive of outcomes into adulthood than early academics. ~ Amanda Morgan, Motherly

Customer Success Stories
CONNECTION before CORRECTION
Understand the Feeling. Meet the Need. Change the Behavior.
When your kids are stressed or anxious, and they don’t have the words to tell you what’s going on, they will act out, shut down or say, “my tummy hurts.”
Your go-to reaction is to fix the behavior. But until you and your kiddo understand their feelings and needs and can respond vs. react, the behavior will continue.
Beneath every behavior is a feeling. And beneath every feeling is a need.
Ashleigh Warner, Clinical Social Worker and Therapist
Everyone experiences stress and anxiety sometimes, but…
For millions of kids, stress, worry or anxiety in social situations feels overwhelming and prevents them from doing everyday activities. When not effectively managed, this can impede healthy development, academic success and well-being.
Social and emotional skills are even more critical for success with the increase in digital connection and pressure to perform. We need to teach our kiddos how to understand and manage the big emotions and stress they’re experiencing. We need to partner with them to learn how to thrive and feel more joy.
Playing with Connection Zoo® leads to:
Less stress and frustration | More smiles | Fun family playtime | Participation in social activities
Increased self-awareness | Better self-management skills | Stronger relationships | Academic success
Feel Well | Do Well | Be Well
