I am sure that you will all agree that all children can benefit from being able to build their self esteem and manage their emotions. We all need a little help from time to time, when things make us feel sad and worried. Sometimes we can all find it difficult to talk to parents, teachers or friends about it. The Worry Windmill is here to help the children. We get them to sign up to Tappy Towns Worry Windmill which is quick, free and confidential. It allows them speak to someone, who will help them with what ever is worrying or upsetting them. They will have their very own ID and password which means no other children can see what they write.
We will listen to them and let them take them time in explaining what is worrying them. Whether they are being bullied, worried about a test or exam or any other personal worry; we have trained people to be able to help them and offer advice on how to feel better.
We get the children to simply write what is upsetting them and we will reply with ways that can help them “feel good fast”.
