Mr Hairy Scary - Naming our children's fears.

Anxiety is like a caterpillar that when left unchecked can slowly chew its way through your child’s self-esteem.

One of the ways to nip this caterpillar in the bud is to explore it.

How do I do that you might say?

Talk to your child and simply explain what anxiety is and how it can make us feel. Give it a name. If your child has several dominant worries you might like to name each worry.
