It has been a well document fact that my eldest son, Joshua (age 5) is what I call my sensitive sausage.
He is highly sensitive and is a very deep thinker, which in itself is not a problem but if there is something on his mind it can make it unbearable for him as he over processes again and again. Sometimes even the most trivial of things can make him more upset than other children.
We have had tears and upset for some of the strangest of things so when we were introduced to the newest concept from the Irish Fairy Door Company, the Worry Plaque I jumped at the chance to give it ago with Joshua.
How it works is that Fairy magic can take your worries just by putting your hand on it.
The plaque starts off glowing red when you place your hand on it. Once your hand is on it you need to think of your worry and when the fairies have heard it, the plaque glows green, to show that your worries have transferred to the fairies successfully.
However why would the fairies want people’s worries? Well, that’s simple fairies use human worries to grant wishes.
I also loved that there were little worry videos on the website too that little humans can watch to help them figure through things like worries about friends and family, missing someone and school and a whole host of other topics are covered.
When our Worry Plaque arrived I loved the details on it and I liked the hand size in it too (my hand fits in, which is a double super-duper for me as the fairies are welcome to my worries!)
Joshua has loved the concept behind the worry plaque and its now located in his room. Although I have said before he uses it I would love to know when he is going to use it as I think its a positive thing for him to discuss it first then use the worry plaque.
The plaque has 2 wall fitting holes on the back so can be wall mounted so we are intending to mount Joshua’s directly onto a wall in his room so he has easy access to it.
I love the Worry Plaque, I think it’s a great product and a super concept that seems to help our little man work things out in his head and to worry less. I think for children with anxiety issues this could really help. It currently retails at £29.99.
