Regulation Activities for Kids During Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and to set the tone for the season and beyond, we can focus on an important part of our own mental health and well-being and the mental health and well-being of children: emotional regulation. Many children are currently navigating emotional meltdowns, social conflicts, chaotic transitions, and difficulty focusing or paying attention at school. But how do we meet children where they are now and support children’s mental health through emotional regulation?
