Beat the Worry Mon­ster

Your Baby & Toddler - - Features -

A help­ful tool for small chil­dren bat­tling with anx­i­ety is to help them by ex­plain­ing that the “Worry Mon­ster” causes the feel­ings that make them feel “wor­ried”. En­cour­age them to give their own per­sonal “mon­ster” a name. When they feel anx­i­ety ex­plain to them they have the power to tell the mon­ster that THEY are in charge, not the mon­sters. The more you talk about the mon­ster and how your child has power over it, the more brave and em­pow­ered they will feel.
