Every parent has times where you want to pull your hair out. The kids are being wild. No matter how many times you have asked them to settle down, they seem to get more rowdy. A term that resonates well with children, while avoiding any labeling or calling them “bad” is the term “Monkey Mind.”
Local entrepreneur, Olivia Roney (creator of Crouching Tigers martial arts for kids), has developed an easy and fun way to help children calm down and refocus by combining a beautifully illustrated book about “monkey mind” with a mindfulness tool that children LOVE to use.
Your Chime is a mindfulness book and tool for children ages 3 and up.
“One of the goals of the tool is to replace the need for a time out,” Roney explained. The book gives step-by-step instructions on how to “chime out” and parents within the Your Chime pilot study found the “chime out” method to be far more effective than the time out method.
“My daughter asks to chime-out all the time.
I love giving her all of the tools I can to help her calm down.”
— Enza Kolp, Parent
