10 Resources to support children with anxiety

If your child is prone to anxiety, offering them support and knowing what to say, can feel really difficult. Offering children an environment where they feel able to talk without judgement, feel accepted and have their emotions respected becomes fundamental to helping them to grow their confidence and resilience.

At its core, for children to feel more in control we need to help them build their resilience skills. Resilience is all about our ability to manage situations and bounce back from difficulties. In order to foster resilience we need:

  • To develop children’s awareness of what their emotions mean
  • To support children to develop the vocabulary for their emotions
  • To help children to recognise their triggers and know what the feelings are that occur when faced with them
  • To support children to learn positive coping mechanisms to manage their feelings
