Anxiety in children?

I'm wondering whether anyone has ideas for what helps children with anxiety. Medication? Other strategies?

A yoga studio near me has a class to help anxious children. I'm not sure how it works but it seems like a great alternative for medication.

My 8y/o sometimes struggles with anxiety about the same things I do, usually social situations (she and I are very similar, both very introverted). Rescue Remedy tends to help her.

When your worries get to big is excellent. Meds can help but usually you would want to try counseling for a few months first

Re: Anxiety in children?

Are there specific concerns that you have, or is it a general anxiety? Are you in therapy?

We have our son in therapy and it's making a big difference. I think it depends on the child and their specific anxiety issues though.

Rescue Remedy!! I have seen this work on kids having a freak out and within minutes they were ok. I was a nanny for 2 midwives and they used it on babies that couldnt calm down enough to nurse. With babies and toddlers you can just rub it on their chest. I've used it for anxiey too.

I definitely recommend the rescue remedy as well. My 9 year old has social anxiety and it has helped him so much.
