I love the idea of having a little &quot;care package&quot; all set and ready to go. I&#39;m featuring this on the blog today as part of The Sunday Parenting Party.

Of course we all &quot;flip our lids&quot; and can benefit from using calm down tools such as are in your basket. This is a four week class and last week, we made lists of activities and items that can help us and our kids calm down.
