Empowering Children with ASD and ADHD: A Parent's Perspective on Mindful & Co Kids Products

As a parent, navigating the challenges of raising a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be overwhelming. However, finding effective tools and resources that support your child's unique needs can make all the difference. That's why we spoke with Nicola Young, a dear friend and supporter of the Mindful & Co Kids brand, to share their perspective on how Mindful & Co Kids products have empowered their daughter Paityn with ASD and ADHD.

Through their personal experience, Nicola highlights the positive impact of our products and how they have improved Paityn's daily life.

1. Which specific Mindful & Co Kids products have made the biggest difference in Paityn's life, and how have they helped her?

Owning the Mindful & Co Kids Charlie Weighted Puppy Dog, Kids Yoga Mat & Yoga Flash Cards as well as the Mindfulness Magic Ball has helped make some major differences in Paityn's Life. We use the Mindfulness Magic Ball and Yoga Flash Cards to help calm before bed, after an activity or going to a new environment. This helps to calm and contain emotions; big and small.

2. We would love to hear about any moments where you saw a noticeable difference in Paityn's behaviour, focus, or emotional regulation while using Mindful & Co Kids products. Can you share any of these moments with us?

Charlie The Weighted Puppy Dog has made one of the biggest differences in Paityn's behaviour during bed time, we have always struggled to keep her calm and collected to lay down and relax. With Charlie she loves the extra weight he has as it allows her to feel safe, having the ability to cool or heat him gives her the sense of calm from different temperatures based on each season and the beautiful lavender smell allows for a natural remedy of sleep endorphins.

We also have noticed change with her focus when using the Mindfulness Magic Ball, it draws her attention away from high emotional levels and helps to bring her focus back to a manageable and reasonable level.

3.  We know that self-esteem and confidence can be a challenge for children with ASD and ADHD. How has your child's self-esteem and confidence been affected since using Mindful & Co Kids products?

Paityn's confidence with trying new yoga poses has expanded in leaps and bounds. Before using the Kids Yoga Mat and Yoga Flash Cards we struggled with Paityn's balance when standing with one leg or up against a wall. Since starting yoga we have seen a massive change in these abilities which has increased her self-esteem and confidence when trying new sports.

4. Finally, is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with Mindful & Co Kids? We always appreciate feedback from our brand's biggest supporters and love to hear how we can continue to improve and support beautiful families like yours.

We would just love to acknowledge your brand as a whole for supplying and supporting families with ASD/ADHD children who need the support and help. Your products bring the support and assistance for in home when high emotions and meltdowns occur, making and allowing for some calm and control for parents and kids. We are so excited to see what is to come in the future for Mindful & Co kids and we will be here to love and support.
