Supportive Parenting for
Anxious Childhood Emotions
What lengths would you go to to accommodate your child's anxiety? The alternative (not accommodating) can be excruciating for parents and siblings alike - potentially turning an outing or a nice evening into a complete meltdown. The truth is that accommodating anxiety isn't helping your kids learn and grow - it's teaching them to be dependent on you to control the situation and decrease their anxiety.
