Sometimes kids can’t quite drum up the right words to express their emotions, especially when they’re upset. This struggle can be particularly difficult for children with anxiety. It’s also a challenge for their parents. Go Zen created this infographic to help parents and caregivers better understand what’s going on inside a child’s head when they’re feeling anxious. The infographic outlines several different potential scenarios and corresponding examples of parent/child exchanges. It then provides an explanation of what the child really means, and how the adult could respond to more effectively calm the child while validating their emotions.
