Do you ever feel like your child is having a meltdown for no reason? Like, it just comes out of nowhere and you don’t know where to start to help him or her? Even for the littlest of human beings, anxiety can occur, except they don’t know how to express themselves the way we do.
Truth be told, we as adults aren’t always the best at it either, and children are in the midst of discovering so much of the world and themselves, that sometimes their anxiety comes out in a language we are unable to translate.
I wrote about 11 Proven Ways to Help Your Child Deal with Anxiety over on MomResource.ca. And while a lot of these suggestions might be so simple, when we are wrapped up in the moment, we can sometimes forget it is the little things that help the most. Do you have any other tried and true suggestions that help you or your child deal with anxiety? I’d love to know.
This is all wrapped around mental health and being aware of our feelings. To teach this to children is to teach them so much!
