How to help a child with anxiety - Ep. 007
May 18, 2021 Season 1 Episode 7
Laura Durenberger

In this episode, I'm sharing 14 ways my husband and I work to help my son manage anxiety. These tips can be used for kids and many are applicable to adults too.

These tips are ones we personally use in our home. I am not a medical professional, nor should this be taken as medical advice. This episode should also not be used to diagnose any type of mental illness. If you have questions or concerns about this, please check with your primary doctor (or your child's).

These are just tips that have helped our child with his anxiety that we wanted to share in case they can help you too.

If you or a child you know are in a crisis, please contact the free, 24/7 Crisis Text Line by texting 'HOME' to 741741.
