A Kids Guide to Overcoming Worry & Anxiety (made simple)

The 1 Thing You Need to do for Your Anxious Child


Good Morning and Happy New Year,
Its been a wonderful and busy holiday season which is why you haven't read any new blogs from me. I hope you all enjoyed the holiday with your kiddo's as much as we did. 
My blog today has been written by my co-author, Barry McDonagh. It is a most wonderful blog. When helping our children learn about and overcome anxiety it is important to truly understand the amount of courage and bravery it takes to face one's real fears. Maybe you do not suffer from anxiety or panic but surely there are some fears you too have yet to overcome.


Find out the one thing you need to do for your anxious child.


What to do When Your Child is Afraid of Santa?



So Halloween may have been a bust.


Maybe your little Nate or Natalie refused to go near

any person dressed in costume and shrieked in

fear while browsing Walmart’s Halloween isle.


Maybe you forced your child to engage thinking you

were doing the right thing. Or maybe you told them,

“There’s nothing to be afraid of” or “Don’t be such a baby”.


But now you know better. Probably no permanent damage there parents.

And now..you have a second chance to get it right.


Here are some things you can do that will be healthy and productive

for your child who is afraid of Santa according to, What to Expect (2014)


Extracurricular Activities and Child Anxiety

Extracurricular Activities and Child Anxiety


These days if your kid is not in three sports and playing

at least one instrument with a school tutor to boot—you stink as a parent

and your kids are supposedly lacking. Ironic isn’t is that in this day and

age we also have more stressed out, anxious and depressed kids.


Think about that—



Is Your Child a Jumper or Dipper?


Is Your Child a Jumper or A Dipper?


Just Jump In!



Some people like to just jump in. Hail to the jumpers!

But me, I’m a dipper.

I like to dip my toes, feet and little by little..I go all the way in.

My kids laugh. “Mom, just do it..just dive in..it’s not cold”.

Yea right, it’s not cold.


Many kids are the same way. They are dippers not jumpers.

And that’s okay.

Not all kids are fearless about all things.
