Avril McDonald - 5 Powerful Strategies That Help Children Grow Braver And More Confident

June 16, 2016

See Avril's features on Forbes and The Huffington Post!

​Avril McDonald, author of the recently published Feel Brave series of ‘little stories about big feelings’, has been interviewed by Kathy Caprino on the subject of helping children better manage their emotions and anxieties in order to grow braver and more confident. The feature has been published on both the Huffington Post website and on Kathy Caprino’s Forbes blog page.

The five beautifully illustrated Feel Brave story books are all designed to help children explore emotional intelligence, positive psychology and some of the real-life issues which they might face – such as bullying, anxiety, bereavement, friendships and worries – in an engaging, creative and non-threatening way, whilst the Feel Brave Teaching Guide serves as the perfect companion in providing activities and guidance on how to explore these issues in the classroom.
