It seems more and more kids are having trouble regulating their emotions. They’re flying off the handle. Schools are reporting more kids throwing objects and yelling at teachers.

Enter – Generation Mindful.

I am so excited to introduce you to the founder, Suzanne Tucker. Generation Mindful helps teach children – and even their parents – about emotional regulation and resilence. She’s put together fun and colorful charts and games – to make up the Time In toolkit and the Peacemakers game.

In this episode of Happiness in Progress, Suzanne talks about the long road she traveled to get to Generation Mindful. You’ll hear about what she learned from several miscarraiges.

Plus, she talked about how she shifted her goals for her children and why it’s important to reframe “bad” or “wrong” behavior… to seeing it as a challenge.

We also talked about time-outs. I know many of you use time-outs. She gave me some great ideas to shift time-outs from a shaming practice teaching our kid they ARE bad rather than they did something they shouldn’t have. I’ve been using her ideas on my 3 year old – and you know what – it’s working.
