The 7 Anxiety Disruptors For Families: #2 How to Talk To Your Kid's Worry (And Your Own)

Flusterclux With Lynn Lyons: For Parents Who Worry

Jun 17 2022 • 31 mins

Externalizing worry (and other strong emotions) teaches children and parents to take a step back and notice HOW worry and other big feelings operate. Changing the response to worry (instead of changing the environment to meet anxiety’s demands) is a powerful skill. Consistency and practice are key, and Lynn talks about how to explain and use externalizing in your family to promote emotional intelligence and management. These skills are relevant for kids and adults.
