The Circle of Control teaches kids and teens that it's better to focus on things they can do something about and let go of the rest. Otherwise, worrying about uncontrollable situations and problems — such as the weather, a person's reaction or how they behave, and global issues — can cause negative emotions.

Feeling the need to control is normal; however, shifting your energy towards controllable factors leads to inner peace, self-empowerment, and increased productivity.

The printable Circle of Control worksheet can serve as a tool that will help an anxious student or child overcome excessive worrying. This is especially true for kids and teens who have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings verbally.

What's included:

  • 2 different versions of the main Circle Of Control page with examples on the bottom of the page to help stimulate thought when filling in the circle.
  • 1 page Circle Of Control Situation - this allows users to zero in on a specific situation that is challenging or stressful.
  • 1 page Circle Of Control Situation Reflection - this asks questions so users can reflect and think deeper about their difficult situation.
  • 1 page Letting Go Of Things We Cannot Control - invites users to practice letting go of things that are not in their control.
