Manage episode 328335270 series 2430667
Anxiety expert Lynn Lyons and co-host Robin Hutson created the podcast FLUSTERCLUX to help anxious kids and anxious families, which are usually one and the same. Lynn Lyons has trained hundreds of teachers, school nurses, counselors and parents about managing anxiety.
In this episode, Lynn, Robin, and Amy discuss:
- Why reassurance doesn't always placate kids' anxieties
- Why anxiety craves certainty– and how we can unwittingly "do the disorder" in trying to reassure anxious kids
- How to model moving through uncertainty for our kids
- How perfectionism feeds anxiety in kids
