SparkleCast Episode 2 – Calming Down with Jonathan Hewitt

Sensei Jonathan Hewitt is the co-author of “Life Ki-do Parenting: Tools to Raise Happy Confident Kids from the Inside Out” and founder of Life Ki-do Martial Arts and Life Education in Austin, Texas.

In this episode of SparkleCast, we discuss how children can ground themselves in their bodies when they are feeling "out of sorts" – and offer practical ways in which children can find calm during a Halloween season of darkness and fear.

Story:The Dark” from the Martin & Sylvia Series.

Tools:

  • Body awareness using the “Ice, Puddle and River” analogy

  • How the senses can be used for self-regulation

  • The three “B’s” (body, breathing and brain) used to create calm and "flow"
