You know how tricky it is to parent an anxious child at home and you know that kids with overwhelming fears and worries do not just feel them at home. For nearly half their waking hours, kids are in the care of teachers and school or daycare supports and in the midst of a tonne of social dynamics that can poke at anxiety and make it grow. And one thing we know about helping our kids cope with anxiety, is that they need consistent, steady messaging from grounded adults around them. What better partnership than caregivers and teachers to offer your child a solid base from which to learn to feel safe and calm. Today we're talking with school counsellors, Megan Beyer and Dave McVety, about how educators and parents can help children and youth cope better both in the classroom and on the playground.
