Ep 114: Anxiety; Taking Children from Angst to Courage

I published this first episode about Anxiety in June 2021, and it has been hugely popular. I’ve recently had lots of requests for help around anxiety, so thought it was a great time to republish it. As they say, ‘repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment!’

Even if you listened back in 2021, I think you’ll find it useful to listen again, especially if your child is currently struggling with anxiety.

In the episode I talk about what anxiety is, how you might know your child is struggling with anxiety, and what can you start doing now to help.

Here are the highlights:

(1:29) The scale of mental health issues
(3:52) Imagine a see-saw
(7:05) Think about it from your child’s perspective
(9:00) The physical effects of anxiety
(12:53) Managing the internal dialogue
(14:57) The common signs of anxiety
