    S4 E1 Consent is a two way street

    S4 E1 Consent is a two way street

    Consent education is now part of the school curriculum. In this episode and at primary school, consent education is taught age-appropriately. It doesn't involve sex education but rather explores permission, how to know if you want to say yes, how to say no, and how to make sure you receive a no with respect.

    S4 E4 Threat, Challenge or Opportunity?

    S4 E4 Threat, Challenge or Opportunity?

    Feeling anxious? Know someone else who is? You’re not alone! This episode is all about reclaiming the normality of feeling anxious. The kids interview the brilliant and wise Karen Young who began her career as a psychologist. Karen now consults with schools, parent groups and organisations both in Australia and internationally to support the mental wellbeing of young people. She’s also the author of four books, including the bestselling ‘Hey Warrior' and 'Hey Awesome’. Karen’s books and also her super helpful website Hey Sigmund provide creative strategies for parents to help kids manage anxiety and we’d love you to take a look.   In this episode we encourage our young listeners to ask their Guard Dog ‘is this a threat, challenge or opportunity?’ whenever they feel nervous. And to help the kids out, we’ve collaborated again with the marvellous Moody to produce the song, ‘99 Times’ which may just answer that very question!  To further contextualise this episode’s theme we've also got a story about a kid who almost misses their swimming carnival race because of the fear of not winning.  Additional & free resources We’re sure that young and old(er) listeners will take away one of the numerous helpful and accessible strategies suggested in this episode. Be sure to grab a student reflection journal at GrowYourMind.Life so that your kids can think about their own triggers and ways to build their brave! And download our free themed colouring in sheets that go with each full length episode in Series 4.  Production  Script & song lyrics - Alice Peel Production, editing & sound - Lisa Taylor  Music production, vocals & additional lyrics - Moody
