Thank you to Therapy Shoppe for providing product in exchange for review purposes. All opinions belong to myself. My son and daughter have both been using a calm down tool box in their calm down area within our home for about a month or so. At first we started with having just 3 or 4 knick knack things the kids already owned and had played with before.

My husband has typically always toughed out every bitter Michigan winter with a thick sweatshirt or two. Limiting outside time to a minimum during the winter is how he was able Read more [...]
