One of the most difficult to control emotion is anxiety. When something we do not like and can not accept the case, we care, we become anxious, can not sleep and developed many uncertainties that ultimately affect our body with digestive disorders and a great discouragement. Children also suffer from anxiety, for example, if a classmate’s annoying, if a teacher treats them sharply, if there are conflicts in the home, etc., Affecting their behavior and happiness unless they learn to deal with those emotions.
Teach a man to face
As parents tend to overprotect our children. If you are afraid of the darkness with the light left on all night, or if you are afraid of a hard test at school, let them not attending. But fear is not due so, because the next day or within a short time the same situation happen sooner or later have to face.
Therefore, it is best that you teach your child to confront situations and rewards when you do, so learn to deal with their anxiety decreases your concerns.
Teach what is anxiety
We see people stressed out, panic attacks, very emotional on all sides, and often do not think the degree of anxiety they must have to behave like that, or what you could achieve if they knew handle. Do not want our children to live their adult lives forward, so we can teach them to face life explaining what is anxiety and showing them a rating scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the maximum degree of nervousness.
Your child can tell you what level of anxiety when something is scary, so teach him that anxiety can be controlled by focusing on breathing or thinking about something else, what can be measured by the score often .
Reward your child when you reach the self, which encouraged him to do it again. To see that it is able to overcome difficult situations and feel your support, (not as a victim but as an actor to overcome difficulties), you can go to develop better each time. Tell him he’s capable, by itself can overcome your fears and you can feel much safer.
Passing is the key
You must teach your child that is normal to feel fear and anxiety, we all do, but the question is to control situations and move forward, and not remain only in the sense of fear. Stay beside your child while he gets out of his fear, show that you are accompanying, but does not solve everything. So you’ll help a lot in his emotional education for the future.
