Write away your child’s worry! If your child is dealing with a great deal of anxiety; grab your paper and a pencil and let them start writing. They can write about anything. It is the act of writing that pulls the brain out of worry mode. Keep writing until the anxiety subsides. Each time the anxiety re-emerges; get out your notebook. You are helping your child’s brain switch gears. You will be happy to know it works just the same for adults. Happy journaling!
