Managing Worries

  • Helping Anxiety

    Elementary Workshop on Anxiety

    Anxiety is a part of our primitive, emotional brain (the limbic system) that protects us from danger. This area of the brain, especially the amygdala, is the sensor to alert us of danger. It sends a message to our adrenal glands to give us the adrenaline to fight or flee from danger.

    Speaking to Young Children About hate

    As we process tragic events created out of hate, a question that fills many of our minds is how do we talk about this with our children? How can we tell our sweet, precious youth that there are people in the world who have hate in their heart? As parents and educators we look to raise children who are compassionate and kind. What can we do right now, today? We can educate ourselves and our children in an age-appropriate way.
