Understanding and Supporting Children’s Anxiety: A Vital Journey for Parents and Educators
Anxiety is a silent companion that often resides in the hearts of children, navigating through the maze of their emotions. Join me in an enlightening presentation where we unravel the intricacies of anxiety in children, a disability that frequently eludes both parents and teachers. Children, lacking the verbal arsenal to articulate their feelings, often resort to behavioral patterns that might be misconstrued. Instead of dismissing these actions, it’s imperative that we delve deeper to unearth the hidden struggles of anxiety. In this session, we will explore the various manifestations of anxiety in young minds, ranging from subtle nuances to more pronounced challenges.
From the early years of childhood through the tumultuous teenage phase to the transitional young adult stage, anxiety can manifest in myriad forms. Its impact is far-reaching, affecting not only academic performance but also interpersonal relationships and the development of crucial life skills essential for success in various facets of life.
