Workshop - Anxiety and Young Children

Yesterday I had the enormous pleasure of presenting a one hour talk to year 12 students at Glenwood High School on the topic of anxiety and young children as part of their studies in Early Childhood. A really lovely bunch of girls, fabulous staff and morning tea. What more could I ask for? We discussed the influences on a child's emotional,cognitive, physical and social development and pondered the impact of personality, environmental factors such as the mother's emotional state and technology on young children (and teens also). I was impressed by the students' insightful questions. Their fabulous librarian, Radha, had come across my newest book, 12 Annoying Monsters - Self Talk for Children with Anxiety and thought it perfect for the class.
