30% of children between the ages of 4-18 struggle with ANXIETY.
(That’s the number that psychologists know FOR SURE…it’s likely that even MORE students suffer from anxiety).
But here’s the thing: some teens are pretty good at covering up what they’re feeling, because they feel ashamed, or they’ve “always been that way”, and both the teens and their parents are wondering if it’s “just a normal part of being a teen”.
Does your teen:
- Have trouble sleeping
- Want to stay home in their pj’s all day
- Have stomach aches or headaches that keep them home from school
- FIGHT every time you tell them it’s time to put away the Xbox or iPad?
- Try to make deals with you to get out of going to school, or going to social events?
- Seem “ok” for awhile, but then go through periods when these symptoms flare up?
Is it possible that your teen has anxiety?
Are you DRAINED from the constant negotiating it takes to get your teen out the door and involved?
Are you AFRAID of the way your teen is isolating herself and only connecting with people online?
There is HOPE!
Resilience is a set of skills that can be LEARNED.
ANXIETY doesn’t need to be the reason that your teen is at home all day missing out on their life.
ANXIETY doesn’t need to be the reason that you and your teen are CONSTANTLY fighting over their phone, the homework, their falling grades, or their lack of friends.
Trust me, your teen is as tired of all the fighting as YOU are. (Imagine how exhausting life must be for them!) They just want to feel good. Together, we can teach them HOW.
If you’re feeling worn out from all the negotiating and fighting because your teen challenges everything you say, then we need to connect!
