Celebrating a big win!

Sometimes I feel like I always focus on the things that are hard, so tonight, I’m celebrating the good!!

We have a really hard time with meltdowns and emotional regulation. Sometimes it feels like all the tools I try and teach don’t work, however, last night mid meltdown my son suddenly sat up and said “I’m doing deep breathing” and proceeded to take deep breaths! It sounds like something quite small but for us, this is HUGE so writing it here to mark the occasion :raised_hands:

Amazing news, that’s so great to hear that he chose to do some deep breaths by himself to regulate. Good work :muscle:

Lovely to hear this and testament to your hard work teaching regulation and some great modelling from yourself :raised_hands:
