Helping Kids with Social Anxiety
Social anxiety doesn’t announce itself. It creeps into your world and your life one paranoid, self-conscious thought at a time. What if they don’t like me? What if they are talking about me? Why don’t they include me. Kids with social anxiety can be consumed with these thoughts a hundred times a day. These thoughts not only stop any socialization in it’s tracks – but it can make a child want to hide in their home, avoiding judgement, criticism and rejection.
The sad part is that much of the time the socially anxious child is getting it all wrong. The stares, the whispers, the rejections – it isn’t always about them. In fact, most of the time it is not. So how do you build a child up and empower them to socialize? How do you help a child to not whither away in avoidance?
This week on Ask the Child Therapist Kids Edition I am teaching kids what social anxiety is and how to crush it one step at a time.
