Teaching emotional intelligence is as simple as leading by example. Make connecting with your kids part of your daily life with this magnet set.
Cuddle Time: Set aside 15 minutes each day or evening to spend, distraction-free, with your child. During this time, you can chat about anything that comes up - some times might be silly, but other times you might get some great insight into their thoughts.
Roses + Thorns: Also called "peaks and valleys," roses and thorns is a prompt to talk about the good and bad parts of the day. You can also add something you wish you'd done differently that day. This is a great alternative to the age-old "how was your day?" question.
Worry Time: Perfect for kids with anxiety, kids starting new routines like school, or those going through a difficult time. Set aside 10-15 minutes a day where your child can worry as much as possible; worries at any other time of the day need to wait for Worry Time. By telling themselves, “I can worry about this later,” Worry Time can help kids learn to stop worries that occur during the day and at bedtime.
Count Your Blessings: The antidote to fear is gratitude. Foster thankfulness by making a list of the things you and your child are each grateful for.
Make Plans: Kids love things to look forward to. Use this time to go over your weekly calendar and discuss what activities are coming up.
This set includes 5 different magnets.
