Cantabrians are earthquake experts. We at the Worry Bug thought that one way we could contribute to the families in Kaikoura and Hurunui needing to manage continuing aftershocks, would be to crowd source some help from you lot that have been through them so many times.
So, in the spirit of the books we brought you;
Ask your children to think about the worries that the Kaikoura and North Canterbury children might have now, and turn these into wishes for them -
Think about the ways that you stomped on the worry bug and stopped it creating more havoc in your lives and remind us how you did it - how you still do it…
Write your ideas here on our feed and we will send them off.
Of course there’s an ulterior motive here. We know that helping out others is one of the five ways to well-being that All Right? has promoted - it enables us to take our mind off our own concerns and feel some empowerment at being able to contribute. And, more simply, it will remind you and your children of the things that you do that help when you are scared.
To start the ball rolling;
We turn the telly off the news and onto a cool movie
We eat yummy and satisfying food that we prepare together
We get outside and get physically active
