The Yellow Car - Reducing Anxiety and Increasing Confidence in Kids and Teens
presented by Toni Powell

Toni’s hilarious true story The Yellow Car offers the simplest of tools to help kids and teens calm themselves when they are feeling anxious. This is a story that helps people gain perspective and learn to laugh at their worries. The Yellow Car is particularly effective for kids and teens as it gives them power, control and confidence by putting them firmly in the driver’s seat of their lives.

Toni Powell has been on a quest to find simple ways to bring joy and contentment into her life. Her search has found her interviewing neuroscientists, psychologists, religious leaders and happiness researchers. Being a storyteller at heart, Toni takes all she learns and turns it into frank and highly entertaining talks and classes. Toni Powell’s latest project The Yellow Car – How I stopped driving myself crazy is a quirky and life-changing illustrated book that wipes worry lines from the faces of all who read it.
