How To Help Your Teen Manage Anxiety
Is your teen anxious?
Have you tried everything to help them make friends, be social, improve their grades.
It's a helpless feeling to watch our children suffer with anxiety, isolating themselves in their room, refusing to engage in social activities and witnessing their grades suffer.
As school approaches and continues in session, the pressure of school builds. Tests to be taken, homework due, social pressures, events at school, projects, speaking engagements, etc, anxiety may become higher than usual, even intolerable and infringe on a students ability to make friends, keep up with academics or participate in social activities.
Anxiety affects many people, and can be especially difficult on teens during their academic years. And teens are often very good at 'pretending' they are okay, they are good at hiding it. Often parents have no idea their teen is anxious until there is a crisis, and then they are often very surprised because their teen didn't 'look' or 'act' anxious.
Anxiety during the teen years is MUCH more common than you think. Teens are experiencing such a MAJOR developmental shift in their brain and their body, it's not unusual for anxiety to show up more intensely during this time. It helps teens to understand what anxiety it, that it's normal and most importantly that their peers are also experiencing anxiety. Anxiety is different for everyone, it might be obvious in some people and much less obvious in others.
Anxiety is treatable and can be managed if teens learn more about it...that's why I have created this resource!
