Yelling, Hitting, or Hiding (kids)

Yelling, Hitting, or Hiding (kids)

Often these behaviors in small children signify their fight/flight/freeze response is activated. Instead of talking, which often doesn't work, try TouchPoints.

When to use:

Give your child TouchPoints in a way that they don't have to think about it (like slipping them gently into pockets already turned on or saying "hold these" and placing them in hands). Leave them on until the child is calm enough to stop the behavior and re-engage calmly.

Which setting to use:

TouchPoints Original TouchPoints Basic
Anger Purple

 

Where to wear TouchPoints:

 Wear on wrists Hold in hands Put in pockets Slide in socks
