    Coping with Worry and Fear- Scale 
     There are a lot of heavy things going on in our world today, and even though we try our hardest to shelter our children, they are going to worry. But, pretending that worries and fears don’t exist is the opposite of what we should be doing. In fact, encouraging kids to talk about what’s frightening them and validating them, helps tremendously.

    Many children don’t have the tools to regulate their emotions, but learning how to practice positive self-talk can help them deal with many challenges. 
     
     
    Identify and Coping with Anxiety
    There are a lot of children experiencing feelings of anxiousness and worry. And most of the time, this anxiety stems from thoughts of being embarrassed or feeling judged for situations that only exist in their heads.  The thoughts can easily turn into bigger worries, fears that become overwhelming, and a level of panic where they feel out of control.  This lesson will help children identify the issues that cause anxiety and offer coping strategies that can be used to deal with those feelings.
     
     
    Feelings Song
     Most of the time, we know how our kids are feeling by the look on their face or from their body language. Their lips will quiver, their eyes will welp up, or they’ll simply cross those arms and shrug at something they’re not too happy about. Not only is it important for children to learn how to properly express their emotions, it’s also important for them to pick up on other’s emotions by reading body language.

    Breathe in for four seconds 
    Hold for four seconds
    Breathe out for four seconds
