Each week, I spend some time in the classroom focusing on various aspects of social emotional wellness. It truly is one of the best parts of my job! Beginning next week, I plan to focus on confidence and resilience using exercises and inspiration from the new book Superpowered: Transform Anxiety into Courage, Confidence and Resilience by Renee Jain and Dr. Shefali Tsabary.It is an awesome book for kids to read from back to front. It is one of the few books that I have found on the topic that speaks directly to the kids. I highly recommend parents read it as well. You certainly do not need a diagnosis of anxiety to benefit from this – you need only be human.
