Low Country Counseling in Savannah: Childhood anxiety tips for parents

Monday, August 24th, 2020

Savannah therapy therapists anxiety Chatham County counselor counseling

Low Country Counseling in Savannah

Anxiety Disorder, that on-edge feeling or worry happens frequently and leaves the body fatigued, stressed, and malnourished – can affect children, too, just like adults. The difference being that they don’t know the words to describe what is happening.

Therapists from Low Country Counseling in Savannah share the causes of anxiety and the two types of anxiety in children here.

So how can parents tell the difference between situational stress and actual anxiety? Children will display changes in behavior. Look for these signs or shifts in their habits.

Find Low Country Counseling’s tips on what to do when your child feels anxiety here.

How are you teaching your kids about racism in this moment?

Monday, June 1st, 2020
race children talk savannah

-Art by Panhandle Slim, Savannah

Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs asks parents in The Romper “How are you educating your child so that they don’t end up with their knee on the neck of a black man begging for his life?”

White parents need to teach their kids to be actively anti-racist and they need to do it early and often, St. Bernard-Jacobs writes.

“If you aren’t teaching your kid to be anti-racist, you are teaching them to be racist,” St. Bernard-Jacobs writes.

St. Bernard-Jacobs offers a few ways that kids receive messages about anti-racism in their homes and some questions we need to be asking of ourselves. Read the article here.

We all have a responsibility to do more to end racism and reject silence.
