Parent guide two: Supporting your pre-teen child
Catherine Murphy and Elly Robinson - Parenting Research Centre, Australia, October 2019
This resource compliments the practice paper, Supporting parents of pre-teen children with mild-moderate anxiety.
There are a number of actions parents can take to help their child decrease and manage their feelings of anxiety. This guide provides some information on strategies that you can try with support from your practitioner. Trying one or two of these to begin with is a good start. Remember that anxiety can get worse before it gets better, so keep persisting to give the strategy time to work.
