Coming home from a rather stressful day working with my students, I was mulling over the prevalence of anxiety in my students. Then, later that evening I happened to notice a post that one of my teacher friends had shared and gave it a read. I often see different strategies for how to speak, and what to say to your anxious child. Some I can identify with, and some I cannot. However, I liked that this article not only gave 49 different ideas, but brief explanations as to why they may work for your own child or situation. I think too that some of these phrases would be very helpful to use for friends or family members!
I have included a screenshot below, but please click on the picture or link below to go to the article called "49 Phrases to Calm an Anxious Child" written by Renee Jain on the Positive Parents.org blog.
