Potty Break Episode 8
Boundaries With Kids
This is a heartwarming story of an abused child with a HUGE anxiety problem. It illustrates the often overlooked anxiety reduction technique of setting boundaries with kids. They are often anxious because they feel out of control and they don’t know what to expect.
In this episode we continue part 3/3 of dealing with children’s anxiety during the holidays. Today’s tip: Setting firm limits with kids helps them to feel safe and secure.
Wise parents make sure the kids always know this is for their benefit. We want them to see us as a wise benevolent yet powerful ruler who only wants good things for them, not an angry tyrant who will get his own way through power and intimidation.
