Does any of this sound like your child?
- Clinging, crying and/or tantrums when you separate
- Excessive shyness, avoiding social situations
- Constant worry
- Avoiding situations or places because of fears
- Complaints of frequent stomach aches or headaches
- Sudden and frequent panic attacks
Your child may be struggling with anxiety. And you may feel frustrated and helpless. You are not alone. One in three children will experience an anxiety disorder before adulthood. Unless treated, many will grow up to be anxious adults. This class will help you better understand the nature of anxiety, refrain from reinforcing your child’s distress by accommodating behaviors, and apply simple strategies to handle day to day challenges.

This series addresses ways to support your child with high or special social and/or emotional needs. Many parents of children with special needs report higher than average levels of stress and conflict. Children with special needs may not respond to the discipline techniques that work for other children. Diagnosis like Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and anxiety require behavioral support strategies that are specific to each child’s needs. Effective discipline is built on empathy and a balance between flexibility and consistency. It’s time to stop just surviving and get the tools you need to thrive and enjoy your relationship with your child as you support their growth and development.
Classes included in this series address:
- Helping your child to make and maintain friendships
- Helping your child get the most out of therapy
- Supporting your child with anxiety or depression
