the Calm Down Stories?
An overtired and stressed mom who was desperate to help her little son to snap out of his lizard brain. When little angel transformed into an unreasonably screaming toddler- she knew it was time to find a solution, because she was near loosing her mind as any “no” said to her son would cause an entire meltdown. Solution came out of her own mouth when she approached the problem same way as she used to do at MTV, Vh1 and Nickelodeon. Simple question: “How do I make him click on the email I send his way?” sparked the idea of telling a story.
“Within minutes my son went from total meltdown-to-laughing and curious. After about a week of telling him calm down stories, instead of going into a crying meltdown my son started to ask me to tell him a story to help him feel better. After a few months, the meltdowns pretty much went away and the stories became part of our quality time either early in the morning or at bedtime.”
That’s how the Calm Down Stories came about. Fun crazy stories for when your kid is going nuts.
No focus group has ever told us what they think of these stories because we don’t care. All we know is that they kept aleloop from losing her mind and when we shared them with our friends, and they shared them with their friends, and they shared them with their friends- a few of them said the stories sucked, and didn’t help their kids snap out of their lizard brain.
None of this stories have been the least bit scientifically tested or engineered.
But we think most of those kids probably spend way to much time in front of a TV and they probably eat too much sugar and there is even a rumor floating around that the parents of those kids sometimes lock them in a dark closet, because everyone else who has shared these stories with their kids have told us that these stories were really entertaining, they helped their kids snap out of their lizard brain melt down and they helped the parents have better conversations with their children.

Calm Down Stories is a free audio app with original stories that were created and performed live at some very odd hours by an overtired mom, who was desperate to get her kid to calm down so she wouldn’t lose her mind.
I started recording the stories so one day I could share them with other parents. Because I figured if these stories worked for me… perhaps they will work for you too. Install the app and listen and let me know how they work for you!
Less screen time. More PARENT SLEEP.
