Great Article on Controlled Breathing

One of the greatest challenges we run into are children's tempers aka self control.  There are various reasons for their frustration.  However one of the techniques we like to use to help them control their temper is to teach a child to breath and relax.  The links below are to a very good article on why breathing works and incorporates a technique. ​Practicing the 4-7-8 Method. The 4-7-8 numbers in the method's name refer to the counts when breathing in, holding your breath and exhaling. To practice 4-7-8 breathing:

1. Start by sitting up straight in a comfortable position.

2. Next place the tip of your tongue on the ridge of your gums, just behind your upper front teeth.

3. Expand your diaphragm (stomach goes out) and slowly inhale through your nose for a count of four.

4. Hold your breath for another count of seven.

5. Open your mouth slightly, keeping your tongue in place, and exhale (stomach goes in) for a count of eight.

6. Repeat this cycle four times.
