Kids Worry Too

The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/renee-jain/9-things-every-parent-with-an-anxious-child-should-try_b_5651006.html) featured a quick primer on some helpful things parents can do help their kids with anxiety. I noticed "Avoid Avoiding" as a key one. Another is you're giving them tools, not solving their problems and not denying their feelings. CBT has tons of things we do to help children, and their parents, confront and overcome anxiety. See our discussion on suicide attempts (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5420ntbV_4) and childhood social phobia (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QouWLRgYca4) as well as our fact sheet on childhood depression, http://www.abct.org/Information/?m=mInformation&fa=fs_PEDIATRIC. We also have a referral service for those looking to contact a therapist: http://www.findcbt.org/xFAT/.
