For when little Frankie is always cranky

Lesson 12 of the Troops programme will address crankiness (the cause) and happy signals. Explaining sensory overload and tiredness to your child at this age can help him/her to get insight into their experience of tiredness after having to focus and concentrate on work and going through the daily routine. Identification of the tired feeling and sensory overload as a possible cause of overwhelmed feelings can provide a sense of control over these feelings that might leave your child feeling overwhelmed.

For when your little one’s taste buds lack adventure

Lesson 6 of the Tots programme will address the sense of touch and taste in relation to “picky eaters”. While your child is growing up, he/she will experience new foods, tastes and textures. You must remember that foods consist of taste, texture, smell, appearance and temperature. These need to be considered in your child’s food preferences. Often your ‘picky eater’ may simply dislike certain food textures.

For when your child doesn’t feel like feeling.

Lesson 11 and 12 of the Tots programme will address the sadness emotion represented by the colour BLUE. A “sad” story is used to explain as much logic as possible behind the colour theory to your child. Stories are highly effective in teaching children. It is a tool of play therapy that is used for children to take the information into their world of play in order to assimilate (i.e. make it a part of self).

For when your home becomes a nuclear test site

Lesson 9 of the Troops programme will address the secondary emotion, anger, represented by the colour BLACK and the feeling of HEAT. Primary emotions are the feelings we feel first. Anger is considered a secondary emotion preceded by primary emotions like sadness or fear.

For when counting sheep just isn’t enough

Lesson 14 of the Troops programme will address the importance of sleep. In this lesson, your child is given the opportunity to become more aware of their own sleeping habits and to determine if they have trouble with it. If you know your child struggles to sleep, this lesson will be ideal for discussion and application.

For when your child’s personal bubble is not quite that personal

Lesson 16 and 17 of the Troops programme will address boundaries and borders. This is a very practical lesson to help your child know exactly where their personal space is and how to obtain and keep it in place. It is important to make your child aware that others have space too. When dealing with sibling rivalry, you can use these principals to explain personal space and ownership to your children.
