In this episode, we discuss something that can lower your child’s anxiety, and increase their confidence: Self-Reliance.
This article is based on Episode 2 of the 99 Parent Podcast.
Self-Reliance is the greatest gift any parent can give a child, for it is a habit of mind that follows him all his life and levels the mountains as he goes.
-Willard and Margeurite Beecher, Beyond Success and Failure
Children face a lot of struggles in today’s world. From keeping up with mountains of schoolwork, to dealing with the stress of internet-fueled peer pressure, to being hovered over by helicopter parents.
In this episode of the Parenting in the Digital Age podcast, we’ll discuss what could be contributing to your child’s anxiety: Psychological Dependence.
Dependence most often shows up as anxiety in both kids and adults. The causes of dependence are everywhere in modern society.
This episode kicks off a multi-part series on self-reliance.
