Repeat a few more times (or a lot) and eventually they don’t do it anymore. As a parent what do you do when they don’t ever Continue Reading…

Well we have found a product that does all that and even teaches yoga to children as well!

Yoga is something that I have wanted to work on with the kids for quite a while but just never found the right program to teach the kids with. Self regulation skills is something I regularly Continue Reading…
