Who are Til & Widdle?
What's up dudes? I'm Til! I'm the thinker. I chill out in the newer parts of the brain. My j-o-b is to monitor your thoughts and help you make decisions based on logical thinking. I keep you calm and rational. I also help you think about future events, like that birthday par-tay that we're going to next weekend!
Oh, hi, I'm Widdle! I'm a worrier. I live in the Old Brain. I put you on alert in case there's danger--that means I get you ready to run or fight! To you it may feel like worry. I'm supposed to talk to Til before putting you on alert, but sometimes I panic and do it anyway. Sorry if I get carried away, I'm just trying to protect you! Still friends?
Why Til & Widdle?
Til & Widdle make learning about worry a lot more fun! Rather than lecture kids on abstract concepts, we find that kids learn better by watching the personification of rational thought and worry.
Til & Widdle are relatable, funny and helpful. Til helps kids practice rational thinking and decision-making when they're worried and Widdle helps kids understand that a little worry is a good thing.
