Thank you for purchasing The Anxiety Toolkit: 96 Ways to Help Your Child Calm Their Worries! (If you landed here, but haven’t grabbed your own Anxiety Toolkit card deck, go order a copy now — I’ll wait!)
The strategies in this card deck have been tested over several years. Sometimes they work with one kiddo in one situation, and sometimes they don’t. The whole reason we need to help our children build a toolkit of resources and strategies from which to pull is because different stressors call for different solutions.
Flip through the cards with your kiddos, try the activities when they’re calm so that you all know what to do when they’re not, and breathe… you’ve got this. You’re the perfect parent for your amazing child.
When you’re ready, take a look at the links, articles, and books on this site. It’s like a crash course in childhood anxiety at your fingertips. And, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need specific support that’s not listed here. Send a voice mail or message to me using the contact page, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
