Temper Tamers Jar

These Temper Tamers Set Of cards by Free Spirit Publishing are a great for children to practice dealing with anger. The more often someone repeatedly practices listening, sharing and reflecting, the more a person makes it part of their lifestyle; and they carry on with these healthy habits of coping until they are adults. I also really like the order of the cards where the children get to first connect the card to self by sharing, then include tips on what to do when you come across angry feelings, a what would you do section to ask openly what you would do in a situation involving anger and act it out section to reiterate and practice what has been learned!

Korean Beansprouts Two Ways

Beansprout soup, like Miso Soup, I love to make for the girls for either breakfast or dinner during school days. It’s nutritious and loaded with beansprout, garlic, scallions and dried sardines.
After a long day at school, often eating salty and dried foods, having this for dinner I feel helps balance whatever they had at school all day. I love how versatile the soup is and how if you are watching your salt intake, it’s easy to control or go sans salt altogether and add extra Korean red pepper powder.
