  • Separation Anxiety

    Separation anxiety usually begins around 6 months of age. Babies may suddenly be afraid of familiar people such as babysitters or grandparents.

  • Your Child’s Separation Anxiety

    The prospect of new experiences away from parents or other loved ones can be quite frightening, especially for younger children. These worries are a normal part of development for all children.

  • Making the Grade on School Tests

    Parents can do a lot to ease test anxiety, both in their children and themselves. Start by focusing on the learning and not the scoring.

  • Help Your Children Chill Out

    Kids must cope with all the issues, such as violence or global warming, that stress out adults. But they must also handle stresses added by their parents and the media.

  • Helping Children Conquer Fear

    Studies indicate that almost all children report having fears. Some of the most common fears are of bugs or ghosts, and studies have shown that kids are afraid of pretty much the same things no matter where they live in the world.
