Nixie and Nimbo
Our thoughts and actions affect how we feel. By changing distorted thinking and dysfunctional behavior, we can change our emotions. In Nixie and Nimbo we explore some tools children can use to control their anxiety rather than letting it control them.

Some kids have a harder time fitting in. Cornerstones of childhood interaction, like sharing a toy or playing make-believe, might not come naturally. While parents can’t make friends for their children, they can help them develop and practice key social skills. If you see your child struggling to make friends or getting rejected by other kids, here are some steps you can take to help.
