Helping Kids Who are Scared of Video Calls

Our “new normal” is bringing with it some new fears. Most of our kids have been thrown into the world of video calls.

Daily video sessions for school.
Casual video calls with friends.
Video family gatherings.

Honestly, the list of video calls do not end.

For many people this is a great consolation for not being able to see people in person. Technology is really getting most of us through these big changes.

Video calls can be very anxiety producing for socially anxious kids. In this youtube video I talk to kids about how to work through their fears one step at a time.

But there are some big growing pains for many of us, especially our socially anxious kids.

In this week’s Ask the Child Therapist Youtube video, I talk directly to kids and teens about their anxiety around video calls and how to slowly overcome it.
