Hi I'm Larne, Child Psychologist and creator of the Confident Kids program. Anxiety among children and adolescents is on the rise in Australia and it's slowly draining the joy from young lives. Peer pressure, not doing well at school, being excluded or bullied, anxiety, family conflicts or friendship issues can shake a child's confidence. More than any other generation, kids need additional coping strategies and tools to help them achieve their personal best.
As a mum of two teenage girls, I understand the unique challenges faced by today's generation of children and teens. My own experience of overcoming ongoing bullying in primary school and anxiety in adolescence ignited my passion for helping young people build resilience and wellbeing.
In 2008, I researched and created Confident Kids + Teens and since that time hundreds of children have completed the program. What makes Confident Kids unique is the lovable characters, stories and songs that reinforce key strategies and provide a fun and interactive way of engaging younger children. Older children enjoy the inclusion of technology and a variety of engaging mediums such as YouTube, music and video.
