Support for Parents/Carers of Children Struggling with Anxiety

It’s been widely reported that greater numbers of children are experiencing regular anxiety. As a parent/carer, it can be hard to know how best to support your child and what to do to help.

Family Learning runs online workshops to support parents/carers with practical strategies to help the young person. Sessions are run in small groups, allowing space to reflect on the situation and how best to help. One parent who completed the sessions commented:

“Gave practical tips as well as reassurance. I feel I’m better able to support my child with their anxiety.”
