In this episode, Natasha explains the importance of anxiety management for parents who are raising anxious kids. She discusses being aware of triggers, coping with them, setting boundaries and confronting challenges brought on by parenthood.

About Survival Tips

Anxiety isn’t just for adults. In fact, 1 in 6 US children between the ages of 6 and 17 experience a mental health disorder each year. But despite the high prevalence, many parents don't know what to do when their child starts to experience anxiety symptoms. What warning signs should you look out for? What support do they need? How can you help them cope?

As a child therapist and mom, Natasha Daniels knows how complicated (and frustrating) dealing with an anxious child can be. She's spent years helping families tackle these problems, and is now sharing her knowledge with the world. In Survival Tips for Parents Raising Anxious Kids, she offers a glimpse into the realities of childhood mood problems, and provides parents with actionable tips for managing their child’s condition.
