If you are the parent of an anxious child, keep reading for tips you should try.
I recently took a webinar Masterclass with Renee Jain of GoZen.com. I want to share with you all some tips I learned over the course of the webinar. The webinar essentially covered tips and tools that we parents can utilize in working with our kiddos with anxiety. First and foremost, know that it is extremely common for children to experience anxiety. Our world sets us up to be anxious, perfectionistic, worry worms. It’s no surprise that our little ones are experiencing anxiety at a young age.
I remember as early as sixth grade worrying about getting into colleges. I remember certain teachers, when I was as young as 11, telling me that I needed to focus on my grades to be successful for adulthood. What? How crazy is that? I was 11! This definitely set me up to be a super anxious kid – worrying about grades, tests – who had to complete homework assignments perfectly.
