Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal fear response to something we perceive as a threat. Children who are often anxious have a chronically activated alarm system. They need support to notice the thoughts that are triggering them, so they can learn to manage those thoughts. Children learn to coach themselves through anxiety-producing situations by the way you coach them, and they gain the confidence to handle new situations by having the experience of facing anxiety-inducing situations and coming through them.
