Anxiety Treatment for Teens in
You see your teen isolating herself from the world. Perhaps she has stopped trying to make friends and you see her spending more time alone in her bedroom. She barely participates in school because she’s constantly worried about what others are thinking about her. You’re always arguing because you want her to feel better, but you just don’t know what to say to her anymore.
She’s smart, you see her potential, but her anxiety is continuously getting in the way of her greatness. She can be explosive or start crying at the drop of a hat because she feels she can’t handle her emotions. Your biggest fear is that if this keeps up, she’ll never go to college, that she’ll never make friends, or that she’ll be stuck in your house through young adulthood. Perhaps she’ll outgrow this, but what if she doesn’t?
It’s JUST anxiety…
Imagine your teen beginning to push through her fears like she’s the boss of her destiny. You see her making friends and see a smile on her face more often these days. She’s become engaged in school and you no longer worry about her not being able to handle her emotions. Your disagreements resemble a conversation and not explosive arguments. You see her expanding her group of friends and participating in activities that she refused to participate in before.
As a parent you feel relieved, calm, and confident that she will continue cruising through her teen year and adulthood knowing how to deal with life.
