We know a child’s early years bring unlimited joy but also lots of challenges for parents as they develop, grow and explore who they are and the world around them.
From birth, children are learning how to manage their emotions, and follow the behavioural norms of the world they live in.
Each stage they go through brings with it new milestones, behaviours and moments of delight.
That’s why we’ve developed The Family Behaviour Support Kit – to support parents at home in helping their children to understand and manage these changing emotions and teach them how to communicate their needs in an appropriate way.
The Family Behaviour Support Kit includes:
- A number of useful printed charts and tools focused on emotions, routines and calming down strategies.
- Detailed guide to step you through how to use each resource with your child.
- Picture cards and a first and then chart to show visually what a child should do first and then (e.g. First we go to the toilet, then we wash our hands. First, we make our bed, then we go and play). This resource is particularly useful in supporting parents to get their children to do those ‘tricky’ or ‘not fun’ tasks!
How to use the Family Behaviour Support Kit
This Family Behaviour Support Kit Guide will help you to easily locate the resource you need, recognise its purpose and understand how to use it at home with your child.

Hear what families have to say about the Family Behaviour Support Kit:
“This has been incredibly helpful for my four-year-old. We’ve been talking a lot more about emotions and how we can help calm ourselves down using the emotions and breathing charts. The first and then chart has also been really helpful in getting him to remember to do more than one thing at a time! He now washes his hands after the toilet like a pro!” Belinda, from Queensland
"We got ours today and have started talking about it at home. The visual cues already seemed to help with bed time." Hailey W, from Queensland
“This kit has been so helpful in our home and allowed us to communicate emotions with our 4-year-old through positive reinforcement and encouragement which previously caused a lot of frustration with him. The visual aids have been amazing! Even our 6-year-old has enjoyed using it. Every house should have one!" Ash, Queensland
