Since this is such a stressful time of year for a lot of kids with the start of a new school year, we wanted to focus again on how to manage worry and anxiety.
New environments, assignments, teachers, students etc. – the list goes on! A lot of “unknowns” can cause kids to think about the “what if instead of thinking about what is”.
Check out this video – with a catchy rap and a mindfulness technique to help calm nerves included! Watch and show your kids!
As parents we can’t always shield our youngsters from life’s worrisome moments, but we can offer helpful tips to help them manage worry and anxiety.
“Amy is like Oprah – she’s the neighbor you love who is very, very smart”— Parent of 14-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter
“Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
Amy knows how to relate to children, and make them feel comfortable . My son was shy at the beginning but Amy asked him a couple questions about what he likes and immediately found the connection to him. He happily followed her in the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and preformed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s bc of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
“I went home and practiced what Amy taught me…and it worked!”— 8-year-old coaching client
