The face of Kiddy-Calm New Zealand
Whenever I was asked, “What do you miss the most about South Africa?” I would always say “those amazing Kiddy-Calm bath salts!” When my daughter was three, Kiddy-Calm found a home in our family. It turned our crazy into calmness, and at five, Claire was diagnosed with ADHD and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder).
There was a moment in time when I felt isolated and alone as a parent. I did thousands of google searches trying to learn more about the link between Magnesium Sulphate, ADHD and SPD. Every time I would come back to Theri’s story and find comfort knowing that actually, I’m not alone in this. That there are hundreds if not thousands of parents just like me, trying to find healthy alternatives to make our children’s journey a little easier.
Fast forward seven years, after having tried Ritalin and Concerta with no success. Kiddy-Calm is still a part of our daily lives. Kiddy-Calm has a home in our hearts, and my appreciation for Theri, Jessey, and their experiences created a more profound sense of gratitude.
Aotearoa, New Zealand, has been our home since 2014, and thanks to Theri, Jessey and Estelle I am sincerely excited and blessed to share Kiddy-Calm with New Zealand. And whenever you feel alone as a parent, here is my message to you. “You are exactly what your child needs; you give them two things that they need. One is roots, and the other is wings. Don’t ever doubt that, not even for a second.”
I am Soney Ehlers and I am excited to be bringing Kiddy-Calm to families across New Zealand!
