This is a contest I’d like to enter myself. Stress Free Kids sent thriftymomma Sea Otter Cove a couple of weeks ago and we’ve been using it in our house since. Sea Otter Cover is one of several excellent books from Lori Lite, the founder of Stress Free Kids. I first heard of this entrepreneur and author when she landed herself on Shark Tank to pitch her amazing line of books for children and teenagers. The books, and also CD sets, are designed to help with anxiety, stress, anger, relaxation and emotions. What I love about this book is simple: it gives children a visual goal to help them work through the intangible idea of relaxation breathing. It’s a tricky concept to get: relaxation breathing – even for some adults. Sea Otter Cove helps children picture a feather floating down from the sky. It helps to envision the feather overhead as child lays back and breathes in and out. The simple counts and repetition are effective and relaxing. Last night I tried this again with my youngest daughter and felt ready to sleep myself. Sea Otter Cove is the story of a sea child who learns to connect to her body, stop worrying and picturing her daily events and just let go. The illustrations by Max Stasuyk are appealing, colourful and friendly. Stress Free Kids has offered to ship one lucky reader of thriftymommastips a free three CD set. $39 value. Included in the set are: Indigo Dreams, Indigo Dreams: Garden of Wellness and Indigo Ocean Dreams. There are stories and music to help children cope with stress and sleep issues. Each CD is about 60 minutes. To enter see below. Stress Free Kids states that all 3 CDs empower children to decrease stress, anxiety, anger, sleep problems, and other challenges, while increasing self-esteem. Garden of Wellness also contains affirmations and helps children make healthy eating choices. The CDs are intended for boys or girls aged 5 to 11 years old, but all ages can benefit from the techniques.
