The Adventures of Team Brain is a playful take on brain science and emotional regulation


Children (and caring adults) will learn what's happening in those big feelings moments, how building tools for their feelings is not only important BUT it can also be super fun!! 

In my journey as an educator I discovered when you teach kids a little bit about brain science they are more willing to practice and use tools. It also helps take away some of the shame, blame and guilt about having big reactions to their big feelings.

Team Brain is here to encourage children to become super heroes in their own emotional regulation story!
