This School Separation Anxiety pack includes 2 stories, a male version and a female version. The children are worried about going to school and don’t want to separate from their mum.

The story covers physical signs of anxiety such as butterflies in tummies, being hot, trembly and shaky. All these symptoms make George or Isla feel ill. They believe they are ill so tell their mum this. When they are told they can’t stay home then other emotions kick in such as anger and fear. They try delaying tactics so they can stay at home for longer. The story looks at thoughts and those ‘what if?’ monsters. The children remember what they learnt with their teacher and try calming strategies such as breathing exercises. They start to look forward to the exciting things at school even though they are still a bit worried. They remember that their teacher said they could make a plan to help them separate from mum. This is what they do and all is well.
