|Some fears are imagined. But no matter how small,|
a little reassurance can go a long way!
Tried and True Tips That Help Young Children Manage Their Insecurities and Fears:
1. There are many books you can read to kids or older children can read that help kids cope. Ask a librarian for kids books on a specific topic or check them out online.
|Celebrate kids unique talents and skills!|
3. Helping a child begin to feel secure in their own abilities really empowers them. Everyone has talents, skills and intelligences that are unique to them. Talk about them and celebrate them.
4. Not all kids that have insecurities are insecure. Life happens and can get a bit overwhelming at times. Spending regular family time or special group time where everyone can simply talk about what we're thinking often gets a friendly conversation going.
5. With persistent insecurities it may be best to limit kids exposure to television/movies with dramatic or violent content. Going out on picnic or to the park are relaxing casual events that help ease every one's nerves.
