Calming Down

Summer has brought a flurry of activity to our family. Although it is all fun, we are out of our routines and overtired squabbles are erupting. I am realizing that we need a "peace area" in our house where we can go to calm ourselves. I don't want a punishing spot or a "time out" but instead a place where my kids and I can go when we need a breather. Many Montessori classrooms have "peace tables" with soothing objects and comfy pillows. I'm wondering what might make sense in our home.
