Anxiety and Making Mistakes
Anxious kids are so afraid of messing up and getting in trouble. They are constantly rattled by the thought that someone could be mad at them. They stress about it all day, and have bad dreams about it at night. So wouldn’t it be helpful for them to learn that the thing they fear most—messing up—is survivable and maybe even not that bad, not to mention pretty rare?
Righteous anger is a term we created to describe anger that is valid. How do you know if your anger is righteous? Martin Luther King Jr. dealt with anger in both his personal life and his principles of non-violent protest and the righteous, justifiable anger of people who were wronged. Special Education students are often wronged, and they have a right to their anger and need to be heard.
