Why I wrote this book
As we shift from suppressing our feelings and move to a space where we want to validate feelings and start to use tools for emotional regulation, it can be hard to get children engaged in the learning process. Emotional regulation is one of those things that may not feel super fun, but is essential. My goal in writing this book was to show children why learning tools is important BUT also how it can be super fun!!
Relying on my background social emotional intelligence, experience as an educator/former preschool owner, and insights I gained as a parent I wanted to create something that made building skills practical and fun.
The Adventures of Team Brain is a playful take on brain science and how emotional regulation works. It encourages children to become super heroes in their own emotional regulation story!
