You are STUCK in the STICKINESS and your stress results are: Moderate
IIt sounds like you and your child are having a tough time. You are working hard to support them but their worries are keeping them (and you) stuck. You want to see them GROW beyond the challenge of anxiety and want to give them the tools for greater independence. But how?
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.
