How to Help Our Kids with Anticipatory Anxiety
This episode is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
Sometimes the anticipation of doing something can create even more anxiety than the event itself. Many of our anxious kids have anticipatory anxiety. Anticipatory anxiety can immobilize our kids and create a tsunami of anxious feelings.
Unfortunately anticipatory anxiety can grow anxiety to such a height that it becomes insurmountable when the day finally arrives.
So how can we take the wind out of anticipatory anxiety’s sails? It is key to learn how to catch those spirals before our kids spin out of control.
In this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast I discuss how anticipatory anxiety can show up as well as approaches you can use to reduce its impact on your child’s mental health.
