Give your child the CONFIDENCE to manage school stress.

Step by step easy and practical ways to help you feel better so you can enjoy learning again (and not keep wishing it was the weekend!)

Course Summary

Imagine your child facing the new school term with confidence, determination and a smile!

Let's look at the triggers that can create anxiety around school:

- scary or strict teachers
- not being able to speak up in class
- fear of being late or being told off
- pressure of school work or exams
- struggling to stay focussed or engaged in learning
- afraid of making mistakes or failure
- social challenges - finding the right friendship group, feeling lonely, being bullied or in friendships of unequal power

The new school term can be a fresh start and a time to do it differently!

Making the switch from the holidays or weekend back to the classroom can be tricky for children who have worries about school. It takes time for them to warm up, adjust and settle in.

This course is for your child if..

- they spend a lot of time worrying about school
- they struggle to relax and go to sleep
- they get frustrated and angry about homework
- they are nervous and feel the pressure of tests and exams
- they get separation anxiety when they are away from you
- they are refusing to go to school or have lost their love of learning
- they are changing schools and need support at this time of change

    What if .....

    - your conversation in the car on the way home was all about what a good day they'd had
    - there was a way to stop their whirring mind and get to sleep more peacefully
    - you didn't have to hear about that teacher or that child one more time
    - your child was finally free of worrying about getting it wrong or making mistakes
    - you remembered you were on the same team and life felt more joyful again
    - the underlying tension had dissolved and you were both free to enjoy your evening

    How amazing would it be if your child could learn how to master a confident mindset around school?

    We sometimes forget that children are hardwired to struggle and the more we allow them to, the more they can bounce back from life’s challenges. The buzz word around emotional resilience is called having a ‘growth mindset’. Your child already has all the magical ingredients, they just need somebody to help them unlock this stuff and remind them of their greatness.

    Guess what? That's where I come in!

      "It’s the start of year 9 for us tomorrow and I wanted to drop you a line to let you know how we are getting on. Last night, my daughter wrote a list of things to remember for the morning and she stuck it on the front door. I didn’t read it until this morning, but it said: ‘Governor letter, bus money, lunch money, dance kit, happy thoughts!’ The last bit gave me a lump in my throat as I wanted you to know the difference you made and it’s still there a year later. Thank you!" Mandy, Staines
