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.”
You see the behavior. You try to stop the behavior. You see short term behavior changes. Then the behaviors return.
Until your kiddo’s feelings are identified and understood and their needs are met, the behavior will continue.
If you can mention it, you can manage it. ~ Mr. Rogers

MORE JOY, less stress!
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
Everyone experiences 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, social anxiety can impede healthy development, academic success and well-being.
We need to teach our kiddos how to understand and manage the big emotions and stress they’re experiencing. We need to help them let go of the fear that keeps them from thriving and feeling 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
Create Conversation | Make Connections | Be Well
