The Dragon Song: Calming Kids
Share this post:
Little kids have big emotions. When they don’t know how to deal with them, they can get frustrated, angry, and upset. The Dragon Song gives them a way to calm down with just a few deep breaths. It can help put them in control of their feelings and regulate their mood, and guide them to better manage future meltdowns. Of course, it also benefits parents and caregivers because when they sing the Dragon Song with their kids, they get to feel calmer too.
