Helping an Anxious Child Who Always Fears the Worst

If you have a child who always fears the worst, you probably get bombarded with questions like…

What if I die? What if I never wake up? What if I throw up? What if the earth blows up? What if I’m killed? What if you’re killed? What if they laugh at me? What if I get a disease? What if I fail? What if I have no friends? What if lightening hits our house? What if we have a house fire? What if someone breaks in? What if the plane crashes? What if I get hit by the ball? What if I get in trouble? What if it hurts? What if it bites or stings me?

In this short kids Youtube video, I help your anxious child who always fears the worst, by giving them new ways of thinking.

The list can literally go on and on.

So how do we help our anxious kids not live in the land of what if’s?

I’m talking all about that in this week’s video on,  Ask the Child Therapist, Kids Edition.
