Episode 252

Many children with big emotions worry, and of course we want to reassure them and help them feel better. But what if our reassurance actually makes their anxiety worse?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How a child’s brain works when they’re worried
  • What our anxious kids actually need from us (besides reassurance)
  • How to turn your child’s concerns into a proactive plan of action that will build resilience and healthy self-esteem
