Helpful Hallie's - Mighty Miracle Mist - Product Review

I received 2 cute packages of Helpful Hallie's Mighty Miracle Mist today in the mail. I will have to tell you I was skeptical at first glance, and was like, hmm I dot know if this is gonna really work. So I followed the Directions and guess what ?
To my surprise, it worked pretty well, just as suggested on the package it would.

Now, I am sure your wondering, as I did when I first hear that i won the "Mighty Miracle Mist" just what is this stuff ? Perfume ? room spray?, hmmmm. So I did my research online to find out about it. And there is a very informative video, that even shows HOW TO USE your Mighty Miracle Mist. Here is the link so you can go there now ?

Here is my take on the mist. Have you ever heard of spraying your dog with water to "potty train" them? or on your kitty so they wont climb the curtains ? Well it is the same kind of concept. EXCEPT it is for your kids (recommended for ages 3-6) and you DO NOT spray your kids, you mist the air with it.
It is not harmful and the concept works !!!

This mist was developed by a teacher, and I am sure, as most teacher would, she got a lot of use from it.

The technique is that it gives positive redirection without the need to yell, use harsh words to your children, and without other punishment.

The "Motto" on the box is "Say it, then Spray it".

How it is used: (an example) Basically if your child is participating in an action that is causing tension, or anything unwanted by you (the parent, teacher, or caregivers) you say, 'Looks like we need some help with sharing." "So I am going to mist the room with some sharing dust, so we can be kinder to our friends, and share better". Then you would spray the mist.
The outcome will be that the child will be distracted just enough to change their behavior pattern and therefore can be positively redirected into doing something more productive,

There are 4 bottles in each box, they contain 2oz. of spray each.
There is one for each of the following actions:

  • Good thinking and Paying Attention
  • Good Night
  • Cooperation and Sharing
  • kind voice and good manners
Well, Like I stated above, I was a skeptic when I first heard about this product, but me, wanting to try and do reviews on as many products as I can, I was up for the task. I have a 3 yr. old daughter that (believe me) is VERY MUCH into her "Terrible Three's" so, I decided to test it on her.
To give you some more background, I also have a 6 month old baby girl, so needless to say, she is a bit jealous of her baby sister, although at the same time, loves her dearly.
And the baby sister is just now sitting up and starting to play with some toys. Well My 3 yr. old doesn't like this too much. So I pulled out the Cooperation and Sharing bottle of Mighty Mist Spray, told her this will help her to share with her sister. And low and behold, she was all interested in the sparkling spray, and said, "here baby sister, you can have it now' (it being a stuffed duck that plays music). I was shocked. She had never done this before.
To tell you the truth now I cannot wait for her to do another unwanted behavior so I can try and spray it again, lol.

As a consumer I am very pleased with this product and I do recommend it for anyone with young children 3 - 6 years old.

The Good Thinking and Pay Attention spary would get the most use at my house! With 3 boys, it would prbably be used every 5 minutes! I wonder if it works on husbands? LOL

The spray I will use the most is probably the Kind voices and good manners since my little two are picking up tudes from the older two. we have lots of rudeness floating around the house lately.
