In this book, Wilma talks to her teacher about her worries and her teacher helps her to divide her worries between worries that she can control and worries she can't control. Here's where it goes to the next level - she adds a category of "Worries I Can Control With Help." So, yeah, that students parents might get divorced, but by helping her identify her support network, you can help her manage that worry. If the student is not going there, they can place their worries in the worry hat and the hat will keep the worry until they want it back. How great is that? Someone once told me they had spent a fortune on therapy and all they needed to do was read the children's books in my office!
I have created printables for this activity that you can use along with the book. You can check that out over in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Even if you don't have the book, you can use the activities as a stand alone. If you decide to purchase the book, you won't regret it!
