Helping Children With AnxietyHelping Children With Anxiety

Here is an excerpt from a pretty interesting article about understanding and dealing with your child's anxiety: 

"What’s important to know is that the pathway between the feelings part and the thinking part [of your brain] can always be strengthened. Each cell along the pathway is able to grow 15,000 new branches to help it to connect to the cells beside it. The stronger the connection between the cells, the stronger the path. Every time you do something that helps you move through your anxiety, such as breathing or mindfulness, the cells grow new branches that connect them to the cells beside them, and the pathway is strengthened. It’s like weightlifting for your brain! Like any exercising any muscle – the more you do it the stronger you’ll get."
