Did you know? Self-regulation is your body’s ability to calm itself down. It is not something that we are born with, and has to be taught to us in the first three years of life. Some children however, face challenges in this area, but there are many tools to help! Some of the 4KIDS Clinical Team’s favorite techniques include having kids use weighted blankets, chewelry, stress balls, or fidget spinners to help avoid meltdowns. With time and repetition, these tools can become life-savers to help kids self-regulate.
"It's simple: we can, so we do." Today we're excited to share a blog post with you that one of our 4KIDS foster parents wrote! Tiese and Jason have been fostering with 4KIDS for over five years and are strong advocates for kids. We're thankful for families like them who inspire us to live and love generously every day.
