When learning things like how to ride a bike or play the piano, it is important to practice. Practice helps us to build muscle memory in our brains so that we can do things more easily and skillfully. When it comes to regulating our emotions, the learning process is no different. We must practice coping skills often and regularly to see changes. Mightier helps kids to practice skills to regulate their heart rate and emotions repeatedly to build muscle memory through play.
Use the below booklet to help your child explore the process of muscle memory. Each page has a narrative to read and a prompt for your child to draw an experience or feeling. Use this book to introduce the topic of muscle memory, to help your child better understand how to build emotional regulation skills, or to help them understand how Mightier works!
