    This video was a great way to introduce adults to this concept. Is there anyway to access only this video? Thank you for doing this.

    I love this! I tried looking up Simpson toys on Amazon but couldn’t find the specific toys that you used. I wonder if you could suggest a link for purchasing toys similar to the ones you used in your demonstration?

    Thank you, Susan! This seems like a great activity in mindfulness. I’m curious how this idea of coregulation and transforming ourselves in moments of stress/excitement translates to children who have trauma and feel triggered, or who experience daily microaggressions and understandably so have deep stress because of it. Is there a way to acknowledge these children’s experiences and states of being while also deepening connection to each other?

    Fantastic way of showing kids and adults how we powerful it is to regulate ourselves.
    I hope you won’t mind me using this great idea to teach kids and parents how powerful we can be when we take a moment to regulate. Of course you will get the credit for it.
    THANK YOU!!!
