Episode 50 – The One with the Fair Fight Club

Conflict resolution is an essential life skill. Conflict can be helpful as long as everybody fights fair. When people talk about things that upset or bother them openly, honestly and with kindness, they learn more about each other. This strengthens their bond. We want to improve our relationships, not hurt, hate or upset one another. Most conflicts are not meant to hurt on purpose and many are simply power struggles. Today, I’m going to talk to you about healthy conflict and how you can make that a sure thing in your homes and schools.

The Coronavirus has become a global pandemic and changed our daily life as we know it. The planet has slowed down, the schools are shut and people are being asked to stay at home. With all this time on our hands, can we turn this to our advantage or are we drowning in a sea of worry and feeling stuck with nothing to do. Let’s have a chat about that.

Episode 42 – The One with the Secret Sign Language

Life is full of unknowns and uncertainty. It really helps to know how to navigate unchartered territory without letting fear overwhelm you. It’s true to say that we all suffer with a little self-doubt sometimes. What if it doesn’t turn out okay? Am I making the right decision? What if I get it wrong? 

What if there was a secret sign language that could help us find our own way without having to ask 100 people on social media or all our friends in the playground? In this episode, I’m going to show you a little Smiley trick  that helps you tune in to your inner voice and find your way.

Episode 40 – The One with the Boredom Busters

It’s October half term here in the UK and as exciting and fun as it is to have so much time and space away from school, I also know that into that space jumps sibling squabbles, endless requests for more sweets, screens and other items that require strict limits. Hold those boundaries firm – don’t let the giddyness of the holidays weaken your resolve!

Episode 39 – The One with the Visit to Heaven

Life is a series of endings and new beginnings – a bit like chapters in a big book. With any ending comes loss and grief. Sometimes we have to grieve for situations and people who are still alive. Like when a family breaks up or when our friends move away. Death however is slightly different. It is part of life, but something which remains a mystery to us all. I’ve created this episode to help children understand death and make sense of it according to their little world. We will all have different beliefs about death and dying. Nobody is right or wrong because really we don’t know! Children have curious minds that are full of questions. When we don’t understand or we can’t make sense of something, it feeds our fear and anxiety.
