Helping Kiddos Stand Up to Anxiety

Do you notice your kiddo:

  • Getting stuck in future, “What if” thinking, often predicting the worst outcome
  • Constantly asking for reassurance from you or others
  • Constantly avoiding certain places, people, or situations to avoid feeling anxious
  • Not performing to their full potential because of their fears and worries

Finding the right support for kids can be a real challenge. And even when support is found, getting them to fully engage in the process of therapy can be difficult. Luckily, research has uncovered a lot about anxiety, and as a parent, there’s a lot you can do to help.

This live, free webinar is for parents of kids who tend to worry, avoid, and get stuck in future, catastrophic thinking. Learn practical ways to help support your child stand up to anxiety and give them new tools they’ll use for the rest of their lives.

Is there a fee? No, this is absolutely free.

Can I just listen or do I need to participate? You’re welcome either way. Turn on your camera and audio to interact with others or you’re more than welcome to just soak up the information without camera/audio. No pressure.

Who can attend? Adults, 18 years or older.
