Dalai Lama Center
Preventing Anxiety in Children

with Dr.Lynn Miller on April 4

Is your child or teen more shy or anxious than other children his or her age? Does she cling to you and refuse to go to school or birthday parties? Does he complain of frequent headaches and stomachaches?

Anxiety disorders are the most common form of psychological problems reported by children and can interfere significantly with leading a happy life. Learn practical strategies to help your child manage everyday worries, so they do not escalate into an anxiety disorder.
