Calm down corners are a great way to teach children emotional self regulation and positive coping skills. They provide children with the necessary space and time to get their brains out of fight or flight mode and back into learning mode. You can use the calm down corner whenever you feel it is appropriate.
Children need to learn self-regulate, so why not create a space that is filled with healthy coping skills for them? Calm down corners are great alternatives to traditional time outs. Rather than punish children for their feelings, they provide an outlet to learn to work through emotions in a healthy way.
