Helping Your Child With Anxiety
3 Creative ways to help your child manage anxiety while building confidence all at home.
1. Start with paper and lots of fun crayons.
Sit with your child, and ask them “what does anxiety look like?” See what they draw or write. After, take a moment and give them kindness. Thank them for sharing the drawing or writing with you.
2. Anti-anxiety space.
Create a space in the house that is all about taming the anxiety. Sit with your child and ask them to decorate a calm room. The room is all about helping them feel at ease and everything that is the opposite of anxiety.
3. Give Your Child An Anxiety Jar
An anxiety jar is used to give your child a place to put everything that makes them feel worried, nervous, and other symptoms that connect to anxiety.
