Brilliant for kids who are sensitive, reserved one for my lil gal as children really buy into these and help a lot. We use a dream catcher and it works wonders for nightmares etc.

Let the fairies take your worries away. The magical Worry Plaque glows red when you place your hand on it and think of your worry. When it changes to green, you’ll know that your worry has been taken by the fairies and you can be happy again. Includes access to positive video affirmations online.

Opens up channels of communication between parent and child.

Provides reassurance to the child that their worry is gone.

Includes access to a library of positive video affirmations online.

I'd hate to see some of you guys here with young kids. If it helps a kid cope with any fears or anxiety, then why not? They've got plenty of years ahead them anyway before "growing up".

I know half of it is just trolling, but there's some real idiots on here, to suggest children can't have anxieties or worries is Victorian. Parents being nice to their children is spoiling them? Believe it or not it can be tougher being a kid in a lot of ways these days, knobhead internet trolls for a start.

The sooner they face up to the real world, the better !! Kids are too soft, it's a tough old world out there - stop molly-cuddling them

To you maybe, you fail to realise that kids believe in these kind of things, tooth fairy helps them with body parts falling out, why not fairy plaque for their worries. Placebo effect is proven time n time again

Agreed.

I think some parents can’t let go and subconsciously need crap like this to make precious more needy.

Worried? - Ok the Xbox is getting removed
Not Worried? - Ok you can have it back now, we Gucci?

With certain things yes but these days kids are pushed way too much, soon as my kids went into year 1 they was given regular homework, then they have sats etc, kids get stressed way too much and way too early. And they wonder why there has been massive increase in children with anxiety and depression.

Magic is real! You earn money and then poof! the government magically gets most of it! Magic! Can’t see it blurring the lines of reality though.

I told my kids that fairies, Santa and ghost are not real from the very beginning.
When I discovered as a kid that santa wasn't real, it was only fair for me to lie to my parents the same way they did without any shame.

As a parent of children with mental health issues, I can see this being a great help. If just for a while it eases worries and anxieties and gives a bit of confidence then who is anyone to knock it down! Voted hot op.
If you really want to help your kids, spend time with them, talk to them. Craft crap like this instead of just buying it.

Mass produced junk like this only ends up using the planets resources and end up polluting our fragile ecosystem.

Oh no there goes my anxieties again, better reach for my wallet to buy something to help.

Not sure how this got political, I just don't understand why adults choose to deceive there children and expect them to grow up and be honest. It truly makes no sense.basicly your teaching children it's OK to lie as long as your make someone feel better.

Was just saying magic exists . Hukd can always turn political lol. It’s not teaching your kids to lie though. It’s simply letting them get rid of their worries. It helps and it works. It just depends how you explain it to a child
Maybe at the time but as there mind developes and grows they also learn that there teacher is full of yes that's right, so now they think it's OK to talk more bull because that's how it works so keep up the facade, then they grow up to become politicians that's real magic.
It's complete blarney, to be sure!
sometimes lieing can be ok, particularly if my wife asks if her bum looks big in that dress, I'll teach my kids that. I'll also teach them to judge someone on their actions and opinions rather than their name.

The thing is your just lieing to yourself, I'm not judging you, you tried to make a point that didn't make sense what you fail to understand however to try to justify lieing is wrong where I come from a lie is a lie, little white or not it's still a lie so you keep up with your fake life I'm sure your wife will be over the moon but I like to keep my relationship with my wife real and personally if my wifes backside looked big in her skirt I would tell her thats just the way I like it hence the reason why I married you, but like I said if you feel like lieing to your wife then I fully understand what sort of marriage your into. So Good luck, now I also understand why the divorce rate is so high.
Worry hahaha. Tell them about the burglars coming in thru the window at night. Then they will be worried

See as I mentioned earlier it depends how it’s used. If you talk to the kids about their worries and then get them to use the worry plaque and explain that the plaque will make it easier to deal with then it will aid them to deal with the issues better. There are some children out there with mental issues and if the aid of this will improve that then I see nothing wrong with it. I have mental issues and it is been mentioned by therapists that it can be hereditary and I see things in my kids that are tell tale signs but I’d rather try deal with them early on so they can have the skills later in life if they worsen (hopefully making them not suffer as I have). I would have seen this as a godsend when I was a kid! Children have so much more pressure these days. Not ranting as everyone has their opinions which I honestly respect as if you have never dealt with these issues then you would have no clue about it and see it as daft.

Don't patronise me or others by saying just because one may disagree with you then "we have no clue" and that's why we see it as daft. I have had more than my fair share of mental health issues, stemming mainly from childhood, and from my experience I think this could in fact be counter-productive. So I respectfully disagree but not from a position of ignorance.

I said if you have never dealt with it so if you have then that was clearly not aimed at you. Wow man. Obviously those who haven’t dealt with it won’t have a clue it goes without saying. I respect your opinion and take it on board but in way shape or form am I patronising you.
This is lazy parenting. No doubt kids can have issues but using things like this as a remedy is purely giving the parent an easier life and the kid a false feeling of resolution. You may say, well at least it works in the moment, which some might feel is all that matters, in reality these issues need nipped in the bud with genuine coping mechanisms not temporary solutions.
Babying a child that suffers from a condition that this type of stuff is aimed at does more damage than good. There's a big difference between being comforted and being understood and helped.

Perhaps you should consider why the aid has been developed in the first place?

Now i don't know what to do. I wonder who has it right, millions of parents who allow their children to enjoy a magical part of growing up or this edge lord who hates his dad.....
I put my hand on one of these... now dead people visit! 😔
Wow, some people on here really have nothing better to do than attack other people's parenting techniques and the fact they want to help their children stop worrying.

Kids grow up too fast as it is, let them be kids and think magic is real for a few years, there's no harm in it.

I guarantee the people complaining are the kind of parents who shove a screen in front of their child to keep them quiet, rather than take a moment to understand their child.

Side note - You guys must be great at parties or when going to the movies. You won't find happiness in dispelling what others find comfort in, but enjoy crawling back under your bridge.
Lol all the crap parenting advice “they need to be in the real world, when I was a kid kids weren’t kids and toys didn’t exist back to the good old days I say let’s leave Europe!”

Kids aren’t kids long let them believe in magic you miserable sods

This is mainly used by teachers or play groups by the way because guess what parents aren’t there to talk to them and the other half of parents don’t talk to their kids anyway and send them to school with all sorts of issues.

People saying this usually either have no clue about how social interactions work and how human beings survive and thrive, or are in dire need of an interactive worry plaque. More often than not, both applies.
