How to Use a Worry Box

Children and teens can struggle with stress, worry and anxieties which can mean they struggle to concentrate on academic tasks or they play out their worries in other ways e.g. withdrawing, aggression towards others, silliness.

Children sometimes need help to make sense of these big feelings. A worry box provides a safe place for children to put their worries so that they can focus their attention on other things. The worry box takes care of the worries until there is time to talk about them or until they are no longer something to worry about.
