Positive Penguins is an award winning, top ranked, fun educational app developed for children to help them understand why they feel the way they do and help them challenge their negative thinking. The app aims to help children understand their feelings come from their own thoughts not the situations. Often the anxiety and stress we feel comes from not real threats, but stories we make up in our heads. The four positive penguins take you on a journey to help you understand that feelings arise from your thinking and if you challenge your negative thoughts successfully you may be able to see things in a more realistic and even optimistic way.
Children often feel anxious, angry, frustrated, bullied, worried etc and that is normal – however, few children are taught to be mindful, catch the thoughts that led them to these feelings and challenge them if needed. They can then change the way the feel and behave.
