Parenting Hints For Dealing With Anxiety

Routines can help children develop patience. A routine chart can outline when bedtime is and how to behave at other difficult times. Children can help with decorating the chart with stickers and the order in which they should complete tasks. By setting a routine, parents can help children become more independent and feel more important. Parents can also take part in their children’s routine by doing their own homework. If this approach does not work, consider finding a trusted friend or neighbor to help out.

Explain why you want something. Children sometimes misunderstand parents. Make sure to explain your intentions clearly, and then ask them to repeat what they said. A child might not understand what you meant to say and might be confused about it. Be understanding and persistent, but don’t push too hard. This can create an environment where your child doesn’t feel comfortable talking about their feelings. If you’re a parent, here are a few tips to help your child deal with his or her anxiety:

Give your child opportunities to make friends. Often, kids become discouraged when they are unsuccessful at making friends. They have to try multiple times before they succeed in making friends. This means teaching them relationship skills. Children should learn how to ask questions, express their opinions, and cooperate with others. Encourage them to do activities that promote a sense of belonging and connection. If possible, offer your child earphones for listening to books or music. It’s a great way to spark their interest in books and other media.
