Parenting children with Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most prevalent issues confronting children and youth today. Research estimates  that twenty percent of  children suffer from some form of anxiety.  When a child suffers from fears, phobias and anxiety it affects everyone in his/her life, especially the parents.
Previous work with children suffering from anxiety focused solely on the children and required both motivation and cooperation from the child to overcome the anxiety.  But what happens when the child refuses to cooperate and receive help? What happens when parents feel like they are taken hostage by the child’s phobia?
The New Authority Center has developed a program to help parents cope with children suffering from anxiety in a way that is not dependent on the child’s cooperation.  While respecting both the child and his/her fears, parents learn to regain their personal boundaries. Our model of work guides parents to help their child, when the child does not want help.
