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

What To Do With My Anxious Child?

 

Teaching your child not be afraid is nearly impossible.

Kids and adults alike are afraid of things!

Fear is natural and GOOD.

Yes, GOOD.

It keeps you alive when a lion is about to attack by giving you adrenaline to run. REALLY FAST!

But, when too much fear overtakes the body with dreadful sensations like

Racing heart, dizziness, nausea, etc. people begin avoiding those situations that bring those sensations on.

This is where the problem begins. Your brain begins to get conditioned to think that in order to feel safe I must escape this situation that brings about these feelings.

Little Bumble Bee

 

When I was about 5 years old or so I remember my Grandfather telling me what goes up must come down!



He was teaching me about rain, clouds and precipitation at the time.

This past Sunday I was coming out of a deep mediation and as I opened my eyes I saw a huge

yellow jacket bumble bee buzzing around my screened in porch.



It was bold and beautiful with quite an intimidating buzz.



I am not sure the bumble bee even knew the power it had over this other

creature which was a 1000 times bigger then it. That (it) being me!



I rushed to shut the screen door and quietly sat back in my meditation trying not too loose my steadfast gaze.



As I stared in awe at this beautiful, smart and wildly amazing bumble bee I noticed that she

had lost her way. As strong, powerful and magnificent as she was, she was lost.

She was stuck. She could not find her way.


That's kind of what happens when people get depressed and anxious.

They get stuck and cannot find their way out.
