Need ideas and help for children who struggle with worry, frustration, tough life situations and friendship skills?
Calm Kid Central is an online program run by child psychologists – which helps kids feel calm, confident and co-operative.
It does this in three ways:
- Kids watch a series of 3 minute cartoons on their ipads/tablets/phones etc which help them manage worry, learn how to calm down when they are mad or anxious, get along better with their friends/siblings, cooperate with adults, use calm words and much more. Each kids’ video has a discussion guide for adults and a poster for kids to print out to remind them of the ideas later.
- Parents/carers watch videos or read articles about the typical challenges parents have when dealing with “kids with big feelings”. These videos and articles include a recording of a real parent talking to a real child so parents/carers know exactly *what to say and do* when dealing with kids who get anxious, frustrated, have meltdowns, don’t listen, struggle with conflict with their siblings and worry a lot.
- Our child psychologists answer unlimited questions from parent/carers about child anxiety/child frustration/child development, how to respond to kids and support them. All questions are individually answered within 48 hours (for 48 weeks a year!)
Pricing: For a limited time we have been funded by the Australian Federal Government (via Adelaide Primary Health Network) to provide completely free access for one year to Calm Kid Central for 325 families who live in the Adelaide Metropolitan area and who have a health care card.
