“Children with anxiety difﬁculties tend to lack conﬁdence in their abilities and feel overwhelmed easily. They need to learn how to cope with worries and build conﬁdence. Children with these difﬁculties beneﬁt from parents and carers providing positive support and teaching them the emotional and thinking skills that can help them manage their worries.”
Teach children to be brave by showing them you believe they can do things and encouraging them to have a go even when they are scared or worried. You might remind them of a time when they were brave and it worked.
Help them to see that by worrying less they can do more and feel better about themselves.”
