Safe-Place Breathing Icons (Conscious Discipline) Print these icons to put near your child's "safe spot" to cool down at - examples include a bean bag chair, a tent, a special mat or rug, etc. Fill this space with things like coloring pages, books, fidget toys, a special stuffed animal to encourage self-soothing. Encourage them to go to this space when angry, anxious, sad. This is not to be used as a punishment. You can say "(Name), your body and tone of voice is telling me you're getting angry, I'm wondering if going to the safe place would be helpful.
