“Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood"

It’s normal to be afraid of the unknown. Once children understand thing, they will be less likely to be scared. Like before a presentation at school, but after you talk it through with them, or they tell someone their fears, they might realize it isn't that bad. When you understand how storms work, you will be less likely to hide under your bed when it happens. Talk to your children about fears you have faced and how understanding them made you feel better. Have they overcome a fear by talking about it with a family member, friend or teacher? What fears do they have? Discussing them, talking about them will make everyone feel better about it. 

Maria Salomea Sklodowski was born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1867. She was the youngest of five children. Her dad taught math and physics and her mom was headmistress at a girl's school. She was a very bright child and did well in school. She had a sharp memory and worked hard on her studies. Both of her parents were educators and insisted that their girls be educated as well as their son. Maria graduated from high school first in her class at the age of 15.

She was a physicist and chemist and a pioneer in the study of radiation. Soon doctors found that radiology could help with curing cancer.  Marie was the founder of the Curie Institutes, which are important medical research centers. She and her husband, Pierre, discovered the elements polonium and radium. They were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, and she received another one, for Chemistry, in 1911. Marie became very famous. Scientists came from around the world to study radioactivity with Marie.
