Being famous at home requires that we become students of our kids. That we pay attention to what brings them alive and what shuts them down.
Our resident therapist, Sissy Goff, joins us this week to talk about how we can better know our girls, especially when they worry. If you haven’t heard Sissy before, and you have a daughter, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
She begins by helping us understand some of the causes of the anxiety epidemic in girls today–from the biological to the generational, and even how we as parents tend to handle it.
Here are some highlights from this week’s episode:
- Sissy describes the two most common parenting strategies as parents, why they make sense, but why they’re not helpful.
- A simplistic definition of anxiety for girls that helps us practically be able to help our girls realize they are bigger than the thing they are afraid of.
- The one primary strategy for helping your daughter overcome fear.
- How you can help your young daughter who is afraid of going to sleep or sleeping in her own beds overcome that fear.
- Why grades are so anxiety-producing for girls today.
- Practical exercises to help our girls of all ages overcome anxiety.
