Tips to Help an Anxious Child

This entry was posted in News on by .

During these uncertain times, anxiety can be popping up where it wasn’t before. Here are a few tips to help you and your child. 

  • Provide the opportunity for adequate sleep 
  • Serve healthy meals
  • Remind your child to drink plenty of water
  • Allow for downtime to decompress
  • Allow for outdoor free play
  • Exercise daily
  • Avoid avoidance (help your child face their worry instead of avoiding it)
  • Let your child worry (don’t say “don’t worry”, instead ask them to describe the worry in order to de-escalate it and show that it may not be necessary)
