About This Workshop

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, and there are proven strategies you can use to help your anxious child. 

One in three children will experience an anxiety disorder before adulthood. Unless treated, childhood anxiety doesn’t just go away, and many will grow up to be anxious adults. If you’re wondering how to support your anxious child in ways that help, want to learn what really doesn’t help, or if you’re simply curious about childhood anxiety, this workshop is for you.
