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.

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.

School or Home?

Each book contains wellbeing tasks to complete relevant to each story. This can be completed in five weeks, or take longer and you build on it week by week as you choose. On completion, it can be dipped in and out of at any time. The building blocks offered by Little Sunflower are taught as a life skill that children can absorb and then call on anytime they feel the need.

 

The animal characters at school have been developed to emulate the children’s worries, how they deal with the situation and their feelings. They are infused with empathy and compassion for each other. The main ingredient and message being, that we are all individual and we are all different and special.

 

A recent addition to Little Sunflower is the inclusion of music. Music and singing are good for the soul and our Little Sunflower poem has been treated to specially written music with a catchy beat so that is sticks in the mind and children can hum that they are ‘different and special’.

 

 That is all!

 

 That is all that matters and as long as they absorb that mantra and believe it, then Little Sunflower will have completed its’ task.

 

A new animated package for the classroom being launched soon!
