Straight A’s & Stressed: Navigating childhood, teen and young adult anxiety

Posted on

Sick and tired of studyingFrom bitten nails and stomachaches to all-night study sessions, our kids display their anxiety in a variety of ways. However, not all anxiety is bad, and it can be difficult to know the difference between productive anxiety and anxiety that has become a problem.

On April 10th, The Family Institute will host a Circle of Knowledge event to address the issues facing parents as they learn to navigate their children’s anxieties. During this event, Dr. Danielle Black, Director of the Child & Adolescent program, will help parents differentiate between normal worry for our children, teenagers and young adults as they face the pressures of school, sports and socializing, and more severe anxiety symptoms that may be signs of a larger issue. She will also explore how anxiety can be turned into a positive thing that can help your kids become successful.
