Worries Are Not Forever

These are stressful and challenging times.

As caring adults in our children’s lives, we know that we cannot make them happy every day. What we can do is provide support and encourage the development of positive personal skills like understanding and identifying feelings, and help them learn how to cope with anxious, worried thoughts, and sadness.

We have made a special lesson available, based on the book Worries Are Not Forever, by Elizabeth Verdick.

You can get a copy of the book through Free Spirit Publishing or other major book sellers:

*Note that a Board Book version is available in English and Spanish for younger children
