What you will learn:

Feeling anxious is hard. But parenting a kid or teen who feels anxious can feel even harder -- whether or not you yourself have anxiety. If you've tried to talk to your child about their anxiety, and have felt nervous, frustrated, misunderstood, rejected, or alarmed, then this session is for you.

You will learn:
  • Ways to get their attention without seeming overprotective or overbearing
  • What to say and what not to say
  • How to ask helpful questions to get the conversation unstuck
  • Signs that you should seek professional help for them -- or for you
  • And so much more
