How does your garden grow?

Updated: Jan 8, 2021

Let's face it, our kids are stressed. On a daily basis, children encounter multiple uncomfortable feelings, thoughts and emotions (aka weeds).

From feeling overwhelmed with school work, being afraid of the dark, feeling left out with their friends, hearing a story on the news that scares them, to worrying about their loved ones dying...the list goes on.

Just like real weeds in a garden, when you don't pay attention to them, things can get out of control and fast.

This emoji chart shows what can happen if a gardener lets his/her weeds go unattended. It starts with one negative feeling, thought or emotion, and as more weeds pop up, a gardener can go from feeling uncomfortable, to stressed, to anxious or even depressed.
