PROVEN STRATEGIES TO HELP YOUR KIDS MANAGE FEAR
Helping our children manage their fears can be a complex task. And with every kid being different, no one strategy fits all.
We put together this list of 10 strategies and 6 books to get your kids facing and conquering their fears:
• Find examples of kids being brave in books or films and talk about how those stories relate to the fear he or she is currently experiencing.
• Help them make fear manageable: Feel it, label it, share it, watch it go. Then make a plan for the next time fear shows up.
• Find ways to be brave together: take family adventures – camping, hiking, standing up for convictions, trying things outside your comfort zone.
