Does your little one suffer from separation anxiety when you are apart? There is a new product called CuddleBright that is designed to help alleviate the stress on the child from being separated from Mom while she is gone. It is applicable to children staying with another parent, grandparent, daycare setting or preschool.
Created for children ages 0-5 and their parent, CuddleBright™ Experience features four key components:
- The CuddleBright™ Lovie reminds a child of the warm connection they share with their parent during times of separation, while also calming, comforting and supporting self-soothing.
- The 140-page CuddleBright™ Parenting Guide, written by child development experts at the Simms/Mann Institute, covers 18 topics related to a child’s social and emotional development — and provides parents with practical skills and everyday strategies to help a child thrive.
- “A Cuddle Before I Go” is a beautifully illustrated Board Book that tells the sweet story of a goodbye routine between a Mommy and her baby, and makes the perfect together-time activity.
- Nestled within “A Cuddle Before I Go” is a CuddleBright™ Keepsake Heart for the parent. The Keepsake Heart is soft to the touch and easy to carry, providing comfort for parents during times of separation.
Molly Kate had a hard time being away from her Dad when he went out of town for 3 weeks. We gave her the CuddleBright™ Lovie and he read the “A Cuddle Before I Go” book before he left. He also took the Keepsake Heart with him. When they would Facetime in the evenings, he would show her the heart and she would show him her Lovie. It definitely helped the time apart to be easier on them both.
The CuddleBright™ Parenting Guide is full of helpful information for even the seasoned parent. Molly Kate is at an age where she gets frustrated very easily. The chapter on “Teaching Your Child To Manage Frustration” really helped to give us tools to help her manage her emotions better.
If your child is suffering from separation anxiety or you know a parent will be out of town for a length of time, the CuddleBright™ system might be the perfect solution.
The CuddleBright™ Experience is available now for $39.95 at www.cuddlebright.com. To celebrate the launch of CuddleBright™ Experience, the Simms/Mann Institute is donating $1 million to early learning programs and brain science research.
