You are DEEP DOWN in the pit and your stress results are: HIGH
I am sorry that you and your child are having such a difficult time. Anxiety is ruling the roost in your family and it’s likely you don’t know how to get free. You want your child to grow in confidence, to feel more independent, and to quit missing out on opportunities because of their anxiety. But how to make that happen?
The research shows that child anxiety is a family issue. Now this doesn’t mean that your parenting is the problem — no way! It tells us that your parenting is the SOLUTION.
Shifting the way we parent to support our children in FACING their anxiety is key to solving the challenges in your family. That means learning more about anxiety: how it works, how to interrupt it, and how to climb out of those Parenting Pitfalls.
And remember, when our children are struggling, we are struggling, too. Fortunately there is lots and lots of research that shows us that the most effective way of handling child anxiety is learning to manage our own emotional response. In other words, taking care of ourselves is the first step to taking care of our kids.
