Fathering | Help kids cope with anxiety

I remember the first time my parents allowed me to go to a sleep-away camp by myself, as well as the anxiety I developed prior to leaving for camp. I had difficulty sleeping, feeling a general uneasiness and becoming increasingly anxious that I wouldn’t be able to make the camping trip. My dad helped me work through my anxiety and suggested valuable coping mechanisms that helped me to relax. This made all the difference for me and provided me with strategies that I could use later in life.
