With conversations about mental health on the rise, it’s incredibly important that we start helping our children learn how to recognize their emotions early in life. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 1 in 3 of all adolescents ages 13 to 18 will experience an anxiety disorder. That number is just staggering, and the trend has been on the rise for a while. From 2007 to 2012, anxiety disorders in children and teens went up 20%, so it’s up to us parents to give our children - and ourselves the tools to help us cope. That’s why I am thrilled to have my two guests on the podcast this week - that’s right…not just one expert, but TWO!
Although it’s a heavy topic, Lynn and Amber have created a fun way to teach your littlest ones (and even your not so little ones) about our biggest emotions. It feels especially relevant right now with back to school around the corner and I know in our home that can be a time of mixed emotions so this has definitely helped.
