A PLAYFUL WAY FOR KIDS TO CONNECT AND LEARN ABOUT EMOTIONS
Child therapist Robbyn Peters Bennett interviews the founder of Generation Mindful about PeaceMakers, a game that's helping families and classrooms connect and build emotional intelligence as part of this year's NoSpank Challenge.
Learn about the power of play and how a simple game can bring calm and connection to stressful everyday family moments. Robbyn and Suzanne play the game mid-way through the interview, laughing and exploring the many ways PeaceMakers bring families closer. See what Robbyn has to say about the card she pulled and hear how one family transformed a hurried, stressful morning into one that left all feeling close, capable and on time for the bus minus any threats, punishments, or yelling!

- how a child’s brain develops
- what it takes to support a child's social and emotional development
- how children learn and the importance of attachment/connection
- how to respond to challenging behavior in ways that help children internalize lessons and optimize their cognitive, social and emotional development
- how to manage our own emotional and physical reactions that we may instead respond to our children and challenges as they arise.
