If you follow us often, you’ll know that we often discuss regulation. A great way to help children to regulate is through freezing cold drinks – and in this heat wave, ice lollies work brilliantly as well. The act of sucking cold fluids through a straw, or having cold foods helps us to calm our nervous system. So, why not make your own so that they are ready! Experiment with flavours, combinations and added extras and if we start to feel overwhelmed, or are facing a challenge, take a moment to regulate.
