If only more people took time to do this for their children!!! "What I love is that each morning, Charlotte and Amelia rush to their envelopes to see what we've written. The notes are sometimes a simple observation of a charitable act or a quick drawing to make them laugh. I love that Charles and I force ourselves to take a minute each evening to think about why we love our children. It's my version of Oprah's gratitude journal.

WE LOVE THIS. It's called a "Calm Down Jar" and it's filled with glitter. Children shake the jar to get their frustrations out and then they’re asked to wait until the glitter has all settled in the bottom. By the time the glitter settles, hopefully so have they.  To make, just fill 1/2 of a jar (preferably plastic) with glitter (maybe a color they like) and the rest with water. Screw lid on tight and you're all set!! WE KNOW SOME ADULTS THAT COULD USE THIS!
