Today, we talk about how we teach parents and children how to manage their anxiety when it gets high -- anywhere from 5 to 10 on our anxiety scale :) We talk about what high anxiety thoughts sound like in our heads, what happens to our body when we get anxious, and strategies we use to bring ourselves back down to baseline. We also discuss how anxiety has impacted us in OUR lives and the strategies that we have relied on the most (it's different for all of us!).
This is a GREAT podcast to share with your teenager to let them feel like they have more control over their own anxiety (without parents getting in the way).
