Book + Poster to Teach Coping Skills

Buy multiple charts and save → ?

When kids are able to see to see their emotional reactions for what they are — a stress response — they're empowered to deal with BIG emotions more effectively.

If your kids get triggered by seemingly little things, then fly into a full-on meltdown before they even understand what happened to them, this is the kit for you. 

Using the book, you'll introduce basic neuroscience in a fun and approachable way, learn the impact of different coping mechanisms on the body's stress response, and understand why everyone needs multiple strategies.

Then, using our digital Power Up™ and the Calm Down Strategies poster, you and your kids will choose strategies to practice, setting everyone up for the success the next time their nervous system gets triggered.

You'll find that understanding the "why" behind various calm down strategies will empower your kids to actually use them — making this kit a total game-changer.


↠ This kit includes:

  • One paperback copy of “The Bear is Not There: a Book About the Nervous System and Coping Strategies”
  • One 8.5" x 14" Calm Down Strategies poster

You'll also receive an email immediately upon purchase to download your Power Up™, so you can get the most out of your tool as soon as it arrives.

As parents, we know that you’re short on time and energy — not short on the desire to intentionally guide your kids.

We’ve spent over a year distilling the most important research and thick parenting books into a totally approachable, not-boring Power Up™ PDF that you’ll actually read. Remember: you don’t need to be a superhero to be an incredible parent. You just need the right tools, and you need them to be easy to execute. We got you.

Learn everything you need (and nothing you don’t) about how to teach a vital mental health skill. Each Power Up™ includes:

✔ A quick-start guide to using the physical tool and implementing it in your household,

✔ Easy-to-read, one-page or less "deep dives" on the topic so you really understand it,

✔ Research and resources to learn about why each skill is important and how you'll know that you've succeeded in teaching it,

✔ Printable Coloring Sheets + Activity pages for kids to do without your assistance, reinforcing what they've learned and providing a reminder of the benefits of using the skill,

✔ Optional video Q&As (they're also written out in the Power Up booklet) and audio content to listen to at your convenience (and only if you want to!),

✔ Answers to frequently asked questions about each skill (and the ability to submit your own, to be answered by our experts),

✔ Recommended additional resources if you want to take a deeper dive on the topic
