About the Inventor of The Calm Down Companion

 

Airlie Drozdowski invented the Calm Down Companion out of a desperate need to help her oldest daughter gain control over her anger and outbursts. As a teacher, she employed many methods of discipline through out the years to help gain control in her classroom. Everyone told her it was going to be easy to be a parent after being a classroom teacher. For ten years, Airlie had been a teacher in the inner city and she had employed many tactics, tricks and maneuvers in her discipline bag of tricks, she thought she had seen it all, that is until her two year old destroyed her bedroom after being put in time out. And time out, after time out things only got worse, until the day Airlie realized that the traditional time out simply wasn’t going to work with her child.

 

That’s when she started to brainstorm new ways to discipline her daughter, looking for a positive approach. She wanted to give her the time that she needed to calm down as well as take herself away from the situation. She knew she had to help her daughter gain control over flight or fight response, the first response a child reacts with when angered or stressed out.  She began experimenting with different items, and finally one day Airlie came up with the first calm down glittering product.

 

When her daughter liked it and used it, she knew she was on to something amazing. As time has gone on her family has begun to realize the benefits of the calm down companion, they now have an eight year old who will ask to go to her room to calm down in many situations rather than having a fit. As well as a five year old who didn’t like to go to sleep until they decided to employ the Calm Down Companion in a different way, as her nighttime buddy, watching the glitter slowly fall entrances her and helps her to fall sound asleep within minutes and after ten minutes the light times itself out, so no wasted battery!

 

Airlie further realized just how powerful the mesmerizing power of glitter could be when her youngest child spent some time in the hospital. Getting to know the nurses at the hospital she learned from the nurses how they use glitter sticks in their bag of tricks to help distract young patients during procedures. This helped her to realize that the Calm Down Companion could be employed for many children in many different methods so she began to bring the first friend to life Tranquil Teddy.

 

 

The Goal of Peas & Carrots LLC

 

With both Airlie and Rosa's love of charity it wasn't long until they both decided that they wanted their company to help out even more. Thus they decided that each character should have a dual purpose helping families and the world! It was through one of Rosa's amazing contacts that the idea for a character never thought of before was born, Peaceful Puppy.  This character is dedicated in loving memory to a special angel Chad Carr who battled bravely the monster known as DIPG, a portion of each purchase goes to the ChadTough foundation to help battle pediatric brain cancer. It is the goal that each new character will be launched in support of a specific cause to help make the world an easier place for children.
