Personal wellness is something that we all strive for in our lives. But for our children, providing teachable moments to help live loving, peaceful lives is every parent’s goal. We want the best for our little loves!

This is our goal at The Tapping Solution. We provide programs, books, and guides about EFT Tapping, which is a powerful holistic healing technique that uses principles of acupressure and modern psychology (similar to affirmations). Here is a sample of it being used in a school:

We’d also love for you to take a moment and check out our children’s book collection! Teaching kids how to breathe mindfully to let go of stress and their bad feelings is the inspiration behind my newest children’s book called My Magic Breath: Finding Calm Through Mindful Breathing, available on May 15, 2018. The colorful pictures provide a fun way to find balance in our world, simply by breathing and using your magic breath to release the stress we all have. Click here for a list of tips to teach your kids mindful breathing.My Magic Breath-1.jpg

The Big Book of Hugs is another great story for your youngsters that highlights how to help others, simply by being there. Join Barkley the Bear as he prepares to take on the family business of hugging his forest friends. Barkley worries that he will not be able to provide the care necessary for everyone, but he soon finds out how easy and rewarding it is to help others.

If you are interested in teaching your little ones the EFT Tapping Process, Gorilla Thumps and Bear Hugs: A Tapping Solution Children’s Story, written by my brother, Alex Ortner, is a great option for you. In this book, a little girl named Annabel has been teased by other children, which has left her feeling sad and hurt. She learns to use the magical tapping technique to quickly release her sadness and regain her confidence. If you’re familiar with tapping, then you know that you tap on 9 pressure points on your body. The tapping process is taught through fun descriptions and illustrations for each tapping point, such as the Dragon Fire Point, which is my personal favorite. 🙂

If you feel that EFT Tapping is something that would benefit your child or even you as a parent, you may want to check out a new resource guide that has over a hundred tapping scripts for parents, children, and teenagers. The Tapping Solution for Parents, Children & Teenagers is a How-To guide for families willing to try this amazing technique. The scripts are categorized by specific social and emotional challenges such as dealing with divorce or bullying, so whatever issue you may be faced with, we most likely have it available for you.

The Tapping Solution was truly created to help others. We have tons of resources available to help you get started and a dedicated, caring team that understands the value of tapping and getting our message out.

Spotlight on Dose of Play

I am always excited to learn about new child life bloggers, as they tend to bring some great resources to readers. I’m sure many of you have heard of Dose of Play, but if not, then you are in for a treat.

Dawn Klausmeier is a Certified Child Life Specialist and mom of Olivia (3) and Rob (1). She resides with her children and husband in her hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dawn recently launched Dose of Play blog as a platform outside of the hospital walls for parents to find play inspiration, coping tips and resources to support children facing medical experiences.

In 2008, Dawn began her career at The Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital in NYC where she worked on the general surgical unit and uniquely with the small bowel patient population. Dawn had an immediate interest in utilizing technology to help children cope in the medical setting. She presented with her colleagues to share how and why they were providing a distraction for medical procedures using the latest innovative digital tool: the iPad.

After moving back to the Midwest to start a family, Dawn returned to her internship site of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, but this time as an employee. She provided support throughout the 300+ bed hospital in different positions, though mainly the neurosurgical/pulmonary/solid organ transplant/trauma ICU; GI/pulmonary acute care unit; and surgical services department. Dawn is trained in critical-stress-incident-management where she co-facilitated debriefings for hospital employees.

Dawn has some amazing blog posts and giveaways too. Be sure to check out some of her latest posts on syringe play and preparing young children for the dentist using play. You can also stay connected through Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
