'I DON'T WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL'
'I HATE SCHOOL'
'I CAN'T DO MY WORK'

The constant feeling of worry about school, and the pressure you feel as a parent/caregiver/teacher?
School is full of opportunity and excitement, but for many children it can throw up worries. We know that when we feel worried, we want to retreat to safety. We all do.
If school feels threatening in any way, we are likely to see a range of behaviours that signal distress, and resistance to the environment. It makes total sense. All our brains ever want to do is keep us safe.
That is why I wrote 'Worry Rhymes for School Times'.
I have written the book I wish I had read as a child.
