Chirpee's ChoiceFollow Chirpee as he travels through the Worry Forrest and meets all sorts of Australian worry birds, including Gordon the Emu, Larry the Liar Bird, and Al, the Masked Owl. All 3 birds experience anxious moments and they highlight the problems of anxiety when we don't talk to people about our feelings and emotions. Running from so many worrying events after meeting the birds, Chirpee finally meets his new friend Queen Cassie Worry, who teaches Chirpee that serious worrying is often a choice in our heads. The Cassowary lump is evidence of this. Anxiety is made much easier if we share our worries with other people. I encourage:¿All readers to talk to children about safe people to share their worries with¿For adults to share their own worries with children in setting examples of wellenss¿For adults to not judge or minimise the worries children have, rather encourage and thank young children for not only sharing their worries but to validate their worries and anxieties as very real to them. This story guides children in understanding anxiety as a part of our being, and sees, that like the character bird Chirpee, we can learn to manage our worries. Chirpee experiences shows us that by talking and sharing about worries with other safe people, and knowing that some worries are not always real, we can control 'thoughts" so we are less anxious. Anxiety is the leading mental illness in western countries, doubling that of depression in Australia. There are also significant increases in primary aged children experiencing anxiety disorders. The recovery journey requires us to be educating children about their minds. Sharing a story is a wonderful way to converse with a child, as we can all relate to Chirpee's flight response. The good news is, Chirpee wins the fight in the end, with the right choices. About the author As a sought-after engaging speaker, Jule's passionately embraces education in recovery with a creative delivery that draws people of all ages into celebrating her conversations around mental illness.
