Childhood and adolescence are marked by rapid change, growth and challenge—and they are often periods of high risk for developing anxiety. This is especially true today, when children of all ages are immersed in technology and constantly bombarded with stimuli of all kinds. When fears and anxious feelings become difficult to manage, one effective tool that may help your child is mindfulness.
Children suffering from an anxiety disorder are often dealing with a number of issues that impact their daily life, such as having trouble in school, refusing to sleep alone, or even displaying behavioral problems.
As a parent, getting help for your anxious teenager is a top priority. To help him or her live a happy, healthy life, you first have to open the lines of communication with your teen, discuss the need for professional help, and find a psychologist or other qualified mental health professional you both like.
