"This resource is an important one to have in my teacher toolbox. I'm grateful for the way it is set up. It is both teacher and kid-friendly. Thank you." - Karen B

Anger and anxiety are normal emotions that indicate we’ve been hurt or our needs haven’t been met or alert of dangerous situations by triggering our fight or flight response. When these emotions cause negative responses they can have a damaging impact on health and wellbeing. Children need to be equipped with strategies to help them avoid arguments, physical fights, or self-harm.

The lessons and activities in this resource give children ways to deal with worries and concerning emotions. Great as a counseling tool as they provide teachers with the foundations for building emotional intelligence as well as strategies to restore a calm and peaceful classroom.
