When children are unable to cope with moving house, a family break-up, being bullied or losing a family member, it can have a huge impact on their behaviour and wellbeing. Being Brave gives children strategies to deal with their emotions through good communication, persistence and positive self-talk – making them more resilient.
Fly is a young boy whose parents have separated… He misses his dad desperately and tries to be brave by keeping his emotions ‘bottled up’. He enters a radio competition to find the bravest person in the world, so he can win a trip to see his dad and a new cage for his sick birds.
During his search, Fly meets various people who have all been brave in their own way and for different reasons. He also learns a lot about himself. Every child will relate to or gain understanding from each carefully crafted scenario. Ishar has had to leave her dad behind and come to a new country and Tim has to stand up and seek help when he is being bullied. Mikalia has to give up the rigors of ballet dancing and find a new dream and Celia comes to terms with loss in her family. Mrs Russo misses her grandson who’s moved to another city. Fly discovers that ‘being brave’ is showing feelings, sharing stories, keeping memories, accepting change and living life.
Researched and developed by school counsellor Paul Johnson, this inspiring show uses song, dance and drama to give children strategies to deal with difficult situations and make healthy choices in the future.
