Inspired by research on how our brain fuels our behaviours, Opey Needs a Repair, is the first of four books in our Tires, Wires, and Brakes Series. Stay tuned for the launch of our Opey Workshops. These short, informational sessions teach how caring adults and children can co-regulate and self-regulate to find their calm.

 

Relatable Stories

The book series shows how connected relationships help both adults and children feel safe and calm. They show how an adult's view of the whole child as capable can help them feel prepared for any bumps in the road!
