Anxiety: How to Help Your Kids—And You—Cope with It

Hope and Will: A Parenting Podcast from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Sep 21 2022 • 34 mins

These are historically challenging times to be a parent. In recent years, we’ve helped our kids through a pandemic, quarantining and virtual schooling—while also navigating tough conversations about shootings in schools, grocery stores and places of worship. And that’s on top of day-to-day stressors related to academics, sports and social pressures. Even those who’ve never before experienced much anxiety are feeling its effects. Jody Baumstein, LCSW, who develops emotional wellness content and programming for our Strong4Life team, joins Lynn for an empowering discussion that’s part pep talk, part release from guilt and people-pleasing. Jody’s the soft-spoken cheerleader you didn’t know you needed, leaving you with confidence to help your kids navigate life’s ups and downs.
