THE ANX­IOUS MIND­SET

Living and Loving - - FAMILY INSPIRATION -

Lit­tle ones with an anx­ious mind­set will be more likely to freeze in the face of any­thing – or any­one – new, ex­plains An­drew. Their anx­i­ety lev­els may soar, and could lead to feel­ings of panic, which then re­sult in shy­ing away from new op­por­tu­ni­ties and ex­pe­ri­ences.

Feel­ings of nau­sea, shak­i­ness, fear and panic may of­ten ac­com­pany this state and it is dif­fi­cult for your child to be calmed or soothed, he says.
