Find out What Your Child Really Needs When Emotions Get Big & How to Help Them.
✔️ Care Tags are special cards you can create with your child to determine what you can do in times when certain "negative" behaviors are showing up.
✔️ The child-brain doesn’t fully mature until age 25+; this means that children will feel challenged in understanding and managing their big emotions and will need adult support, but many times, adults don't know what to do. Care Tags will help.
✔️ Create a deeper understanding of your child and how you can meet their emotional needs.
✔️ Increase emotional intelligence skills in yourself and your children. Care Tags make it easier for both parent and child to manage the big emotions.
✔️ Prevent misunderstandings and increase the connection between parent and child.
Why Care Tags?
As busy adults who are already feeling spent and sometimes confused on this parenting journey, it can be hard to pinpoint what our child is feeling during challenging times. All we can see is the behavior they exhibit. But beneath the behavior are tender needs...
When we misunderstand our child's feelings and needs, it can exacerbate the situation. But preparing ourselves in advance with Care Tags – a fun parent/child activity inspired by Jodi Smith MSW, LCSW, RPT-S, we can instill an important life skill in our kids that many of us did not grow up explicitly learning ourselves.
What's interesting is that you'd be surprised by what many kids actually need when they feel a certain emotion or show a certain behavior.
Inside this free resource, I'll also tell you how to talk to your kids about Care Tags.

"Thanks Ashley for your explanations and enthusiasm. I have since noticed my daughter applying the concepts and she is now quite interested in journaling and getting her feelings out. The crafts and concepts were made fun and easy to understand. She uses her 'failure' box and seems to get a sense of reduced stress from it. I am quite happy with the experience overall and I would recommend it to friends and colleagues."
