Managing Fear and Anxiety During a Health Pandemic

If you’re struggling with how to manage your family’s increasing anxiety about the current public health crisis, you’re not alone.

A lot has probably changed in recent weeks - daily routines, plans being cancelled, other plans being put on hold - and everyone is being asked to tolerate a bit more ambiguity than normal. In order to maintain mental health, it's important to be aware of the signs that you or your child may be struggling. Common reactions to this public health crisis may include:

  • Anxiety/excessive fears or worries

  • Hyper-vigilance or over-preoccupation about your health or body

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Feelings of helplessness

  • Social isolation or withdrawal

This current COVID-19 situation we are facing really accentuates things but the truth is, knowing how to handle your kids' stress and anxiety is an important lifelong tool. With that said, I found a fantastic conversation guide by an organization called Parent Cue that I think you will find very helpful - both now, and for the many stressful situations and pressures to come in the future.


ANXIETY CONVERSATION GUIDE FOR PARENTS OF MIDDLE SCHOOLERS


(fyi, this guide can be found on a page that includes many other great resources that are always available to parents. You can find them at this link.)


I hope you find the conversation guide useful! Fire me an email with any feedback.

Take care,

Darryl
