As parents ourselves, we know that self-care is usually the first thing to slip in a busy season like fall. Overwhelming feelings are bound to get the best of us when we don’t take time to recharge our social and emotional batteries.
When we're stressed and stretched thin, Big Feelings Fox is a tool parents can use to step away and calm themselves without making their children feel scared, confused, or alone. Bright red and cuddly, this creature is a great visual signal, reminding parents to proactively take breaks and regulate their own nervous systems.
Big Feelings Fox comes with an affirmation that parents can share, word for word, with their children. When we’re stress and exhausted, we don’t always have the skills or words to say what we really mean. This affirmation card can help explain these necessary moments of rest to our children.
