Worry Warriors: Help Kids Cope with Anxiety – Pinterest Education

Worry Warriors 

Help your child be a Worry Warrior. For our purposes, this means that he will face his fears head on. As you have likely heard, bravery is not the absence of fear.  It is feeling the fear and doing it anyways.  When kids can face their worries and process them with a caring adult, they are one step closer to emotional freedom!

How You Can Help Your Child

If your child’s worries are minimal and common, you can help him cope in many ways.  Below, we have gathered some great ways from some skilled folks, to help kids process and cope with worries.
