Even though anxiety is the most common mental disorder in children, often they keep the source of the problem to themselves and continue to worry. How To Keep Safe…is a book for 4-9- year olds and their teachers/parents to share. Written by teacher, blogger, and parenting expert Jo FitzGerald, it’s a gentle, illustrated rhyming story of a boy (Cal), a dog (Pal) and his family. Together, they talk about what to do in case of getting lost, being in a home fire, or getting caught up in a dangerous event.
The family makes plans around keeping safe, knowing that bad things will probably never, ever happen. But just in case – they’ll know what to do. The book helps ease worry and anxiety in children and opens difficult conversations between teacher/parent and child over potential dangers and their feelings connected with this.
Also included is an extensive discussion guide with suggested teachers/questions parents can ask, how to talk about feelings and ideas for making plans and rules together.
A scheme of work and pupil workbooks are also available for class use.
