Module 1 page 2
Milo is shy.
He’s nervous. He’s worried. He’s anxious and he’s sad. He’s also a bit excited and a little bit afraid. Such a mixture of feelings!
We have all felt like this at some point and it doesn’t feel great.
Can you remember these feelings? And how you felt?
Helping your child to understand that they are not alone with these feelings is the task here.
You can talk to your child about these feelings.
Children love to hear stories.
Explain the times when you felt like this.
When you were at school.
A job interview.
When you started a new job or had to do something new and different that made you nervous.
This can aid in creating a bridge to help your child to open up and share their feelings and thoughts with you.
Let them know it’s ok to have feelings like this.
In the next section there are some exercises for you to complete with your child.
They can be applied to any worry by isolating that worry and verbalising it.
Whilst there is meaning behind the exercises, there is an element of fun in there too!
