Connect

Our main goal is to normalize mental health, provide hands-on actionable strategies and tools to manage anxiety, and empower families to have more present, not perfect moments together. We shouldn't wait until we are in crisis to prioritize emotional literacy, it should be an essential part of our everyday life.

Create

How are we putting the psychoeducation parenting practices we are learning into action? How are we making it attainable for children and accessible for all? Simple but meaningful art for all ages allows creativity to not only be fun, but therapeutic, too! All included art activities are curated by Emily, a certified Art Therapist and LPC.

Co-Regulate

Research shows us that intentional sensory input can aid in regulation of the central nervous system in both kids and adults. When children and their caregivers dive into our sensory "Calm Kits," they enter into a safe space to practice co-regulation strategies and thrive. Sensory play activities are curated by Abbie, a certified Elementary Special Education Teacher.

Testimonials

After the year we had in 2020, Emily & Abbie's idea is SO needed. My kids have all developed much higher levels of anxiety as a result of the pandemic and it feels good to buy something that I know is directly helping them (and me, tbh) develop healthy coping strategies and tools.

Marketta

I love doing the activities and prompts from the Calm kits with my 2 sons (ages 4 and 7)...I found myself wanting to play with the sand by myself even after they went to bed, it was so relaxing!

Carlos

I love how everything comes all in one box and I don't need to prep anything at all, so easy and my kids are OBSESSED! The "Mama Needs a Minute" kit is literally a tool I use almost on a daily basis with my preschooler especially when I really just need a minute of calm. We can't wait for them to release more themes. Makes great birthday gifts too.
