Preventitive and Proactive Steps for Your Children
I recently heard a story where a mom described the difference between how she herself experienced anxious sensations and how her 7 year old daughter experienced them. They were quite different indeed.
While the mom had been taught to label anxious sensations as fearful- like her
racing heart or dizzy head--her 7 year old daughter
on the other hand, when experiencing those same sensations simply described
the sensations without attaching the label 'fear' to them. The 7 year old made no connection
between the sensations and fear. As it should be. Scientific research shows your body is in
no danger from an anxiety or panic attack. None at all. It just feels that way.
