Type in your worry and wait for the good advice to flow in.At least that's the plan when Mr Speed sets up his super-cool new Worry Website for the class. Holly, Greg, Natasha and the rest feel that they've got shedloads of worries. But, as they find out, sometimes the best advice comes from the most unexpected place.Lots of the kids in Mr Speed's class have something to worry about. From a new stepmum to coping with Maths, everyone has their own private concerns and it's sometimes difficult to discuss them - even when you need advice. So Mr Speed sets up The Worry Website on the classroom computer. Anybody in the class can anonymously enter their worry and anyone else can type in advice to help out.
