Child/Teen Generalized Anxiety

Is your child a worrier?

Do they get stressed out easily?
Are they always concerned that something will go wrong?

If so, your child may be suffering from generalized anxiety.
But the good news is that help is available.

We use a unique method that has been proven to reduce
generalized anxiety and worry in children and teens.


Children and teens who worry excessively can seemingly find almost anything to worry about. One day they’re stressed about school or relationships with peers. The next day they fear for their health or the family’s safety.

It probably seems that no matter how much you try to reassure them that everything is ok, they always find something to worry about. This can be frustrating as a parent, because you can’t get them to see things rationally and calm down.

They probably get irritable and difficult to deal with too. It may seem like they get “set off” easily, which can lead to fights and temper tantrums. And if the anxiety is focused on school, they may fake sick or even refuse to go.

Parenting an anxious child can be so confusing and frustrating. If you are at your wit’s end, you are not alone.

Here are some things parents often tell us they notice in their children and teens with generalized anxiety:

  • They feel anxious or stressed most of the time.
  • They worry about lots of different things (e.g. school, health, safety).
  • They ask lots of questions for reassurance, like “Is it going to be ok?” They may ask reassurance questions repeatedly.
  • They often seem “down” or just in a bad mood. 
  • Younger children may be “clingy” or not want to sleep in their own room at night.
  • They are “perfectionists”. They hold themselves to unreasonably high standards and are very hard on themselves when they fail to meet these standards.
  • They have trouble concentrating. It seems to take them longer than it should to do school work.
