When Worry Overwhelms: Helping Your Smart & Anxious Child

When Worry Overwhelms: Helping Your Smart & Anxious Child is part of this year’s Homeschool Help Desk track (sponsored by Operation Christmas Child).

The strangest thing about anxiety in children—especially gifted children—is that it doesn’t usually look like what we think of when we think “anxiety.” It can look like anger, frustration, perfectionism, depression, introversion, and so much more. It’s also often big when it comes to our littlest ones. Big worries, coupled with a little’s life experiences, works out to kiddos who are overwhelmed and are in a constant battle between flight or fight. You’ll walk away from this session understanding why smart kids worry and how to help them through it.
