lost in space

Hey there! Have you ever wondered why your child is feeling so anxious? Today, I want to dive into the depths of childhood anxiety and help you understand its core driver."

Imagine anxiety as a volcano, with the core fear bubbling beneath the surface. Just like Mount Vesuvius, the eruptions of meltdowns and outbursts are triggered by what lies within."

Children often find it challenging to express their anxieties, leaving us puzzled as parents. But fear not, because there are simple steps we can take to identify their core fear.

One approach is to explore the worst-case scenario of their worries. By understanding their deepest fears, we can gain insight into how anxiety affects their daily lives."

Common core fears include abandonment, feeling inadequate, and the fear of losing control. These fears can be the driving force behind various anxiety themes."
