4 D’s To Stop The Worry Spiral
We often associate stress with adulthood, but our youth face plenty of challenges and changes in their young lives.
In fact, the American Psychological Association reports 42% of youth experience stress, but feel they don’t have the tools to manage it effectively. In small amounts, stress can be good. Butterflies before a soccer game, for example, can help your child feel more focused and ready to play. But, excessive stress can affect the way a child thinks, acts, and feels.
If you can relate, check out my blog post for the Phoenix Mom’s Collective, where I share how parents can help their children manage these moments by teaching and implementing the “4 D’s.”
