Encourage your kids be their own cheerleaders
We are big fans of self belief and positive self talk, it's a super power for increasing self confidence and curbing negative thoughts and difficult emotions.
The Positivity Pouch can help build your child's self belief even when they are at school. It can be used as a pencil case or for any other items your kids might like to zip away (which lets face it, could be pretty much anything!)

It has lead to some very charming and soul searching conversations with my 8 year old son.
It has actually transformed our evening routine and is now an integral part of bedtime.
I believe that our emotional health is closely linked to mental health and I was struggling to find the right time (or place) to have these one-on-one chats with him. The pillow provides all of the leading questions so he can explain exactly how he is feeling comfortably in his own bed.
I’d definitely recommend the PepTalk Pillow.
It’s a well thought through idea which has enabled me to ask some pretty soul searching questions to my son, in an unassuming way, which has led to some pretty meaningful discussions that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.
Enabling a child to speak about their feelings is no mean feat, and the pillow certainly facilitates this.
I can't recommend the PepTalk Pillow highly enough. It's really amazing how something that looks so simple has transformed bedtime with our son and really helped us have proper conversations.
I was struggling to get him to open up but I knew he was dealing with lots of anxiety and negativity so the best thing about the pillow for me is that he is leading the conversations each night and reminding me to use it before lights out. He looks forward to our chats and the questions prompt all sorts of discussions we wouldn't usually have. I love that they often lead to funny stories and anecdotes from his day that he wouldn't usually share.
We are a mum and daughter team on a mission to tackle childhood anxiety.
My eldest daughter Matilda (age 10) is a smart, creative, outgoing girl and a sensitive big thinker. Her worries can often escalate into big emotions, which can impact the whole family and for us, like so many others, lockdown was an emotionally challenging time.
As a way to focus on something positive and away from the worries keeping her awake at night, we decided to combine learnings from our family’s journey, with experience from my career in creative communications, to create tools to help families connect.
We hope you enjoy your PepTalks. Thank you for your support.
Alex & Matilda 💜
