Understanding Childhood Anxiety
It’s natural for parents to have concerns about their children’s anxiety levels, but believe that their child will hopefully develop what they need to be more confident and less anxious as they grow older.
However, the presumption that kids will simply “outgrow” anxiety can be misleading. Children are resilient, but they are currently forming the feelings, emotions, and cognitive structuring that will affect who they become as adults. Early intervention can significantly alter the trajectory of a child’s life by:
- Enhancing Coping Mechanisms – Skills acquired can aid them in becoming well-adjusted adults.
- Enabling Positive Life Experiences – Early treatment may lay the groundwork for a more fulfilling future.
The professional intervention of a child therapist on Long Island can make a substantial difference in how children navigate the challenges of anxiety.
