How Does Little Sunflower Work?
By combining all the tools in Little Sunflower we give children ages 7 – 10 a unique, innovative, fundamentally sound, uplifting and fun means of dealing with and regulating their own emotional wellbeing.
In the Little Sunflower pack:
Five picture books
And a monitoring Sunflower.
Tapping. EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique. A combination of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology, Tapping has been trialled in the USA and approved by Harvard Medical School.
By using the Little Sunflower pack and techniques you are teaching your child key life skills to help monitor and regulate their emotions. A technique which works and is taught, monitored and maintained with the use of the extra large Sunflower, which changes size depending on how far you are through the Little Sunflower series, the books, the toys, the App and the animation.
Not only will your child and the children in the classroom love the weekly effects but you too will gain and benefit from Little Sunflowers uplifting tools and techniques.
Schools or Home
Is this appropriate for schools and at home?
Yes it is because it relies on picture books, the comfort of a soft toy of your choice and the calming use of a child’s fingertips.
The App will see Little Sunflower available online and for use at home as well as at school, allowing parents to take part in the Little Sunflower techniques along with their child.
The five books and seven toys will be made available to the general public for children to continue the good work at home.
